I've never seen a shibori ribbon before, it was a totaly new material for me, so I was hardly waiting to get my package in the mail. This is the piece I had to play with:
Beautiful colors - but how to make it shine in a piece of jewelry? I've searched online and found so many fantastic embroidery pieces with the use of a shibori ribbon, but didn't have all the materials needed to try bead-embroidery.
This weekend I've attender a polymer clay workshop with Julie Picarello and for one of the cabs I've made the first day I've used just the right color scheme to combine with the piece of shibori ribbon I've got. And that was when this brooch was "born":
... and from a different angle ...
The cab needs some buffing to become more shiny, but I'm quite happy with the result.
Thank you, Tanya, it was really a nice blog hop, I enjoyed very much participating. I'm pretty sure I'll take some more shibori ribbon to create with!
Now please visit the blogs of the other participants and see what they have done with their ribbon:
