BSue Boutique Sari Ribbon Blog Hop Party

I jumped at the chance to take part in BSue's boutique sari ribbon blog hop party. I rarely work with sari ribbon and this was a good opportunity to make another design I've been wanting to try out for a while.

I had some sari ribbon left over from the bead soup party and I wrapped it around an old silver bangle. I secured the ribbon by hand wrapping gun metal copper wire and swarovski crystals around the bangle. I really like the effect and it is lovely to wear!

The list of sari ribbon partygoers is as follows:

Vicki Wills
Susan Kennedy
Michelle Mach
Michelle Lee Hardy
Ruth Crawford
