Sari Silk

I have loved this sari silk ribbon since I first saw it on Lima Beads website....unfortunately it always seemed to be sold out in the turquoise I so coveted.  Finally all the stars aligned and  I was able to order is so beautiful with hints of greens and blues.  It is the remnants left from making saris that is cut into strips and sewn together...

Beaded Bracelets

I seem to be on a bracelet kick these days.  I find them so versatile and easy to wear.  I think people tend to notice them more as well.  

I pulled out a bunch of large stones I had for a while and added a few seed beads and I think the results are quite unique.
