Title: Sari Silk Wrapped Bangles
Post by: Mistress Jennie on October 16, 2019 01:42:25 PM


These were made for Powerhouseofthecell in the recent Fiber/Mixed Media Jewelry Swap.  Powerhouse mentioned liking bangle bracelets, which I've never really dabbled in before.  These were the result of some inspiration from her Pinterest, and my stash of recycled sari silk ribbon and yarn.  



The blue and the pink were each made from recycled silk cloth, and the green is from recycled silk yarn.  The cloth ones were also wrapped in wire, and have some Swarovski crystal beads sprinkled along them.  They felt a bit unfinished to me, so I called on sheepBlue & PerfectlyBohemian for advice.  The recommended a few charms to finish them off.  Incidentally, I believe the dinosaur charms actually came from sheep herself!

Lovely!  I have some sari silk yarns I bought a number of years ago and gorgeous rainbow ribbon yarns - this is great inspiration for something to do with them!
