The new shirts that I have been making, with black on black or white on white designs, need a bit of decoration to really look good. I have been looking at Pinterest for ideas, especially here, and figured I could/should try to make something myself. My first idea is above, with bits of ribbon and silk and is OK, but not really jewelry looking.
The idea of making paper beads looked like fun, and I already have tons of painted papers which could be the start of something, but so fiddly, and I just feel I have to make something instantly and nicer.
I have lots of wonderful jewelry bits, broken necklaces, dichroic glass beads, abalone shells, and mother of pearl earrings that I never wear.
And some gorgeous sari strings borrowed from my pal Mary...very edgy.
