Okay...yesterday we got the list re-formatted thanks to alerts and help from Deb Davis, Georgene Lockwood and Mary Deis! I hope you came and got the new list, we posted it at Facebook, too.
This is B'sue Boutiques FIRST blog hop....I anticipated some glitches but I think all in all we'll have a great time. SO.....without further a-do, here is my piece for the hop:
As you can see I used the sari ribbon 'nests' demonstrated in the last video, along with the spool-type beads. I wired and beaded on a polymer clay toggle I'd made, and then added some of my clay beads.
Maybe you can see it better on a white background? LOL
Off the mannequin and laid out, flat! The focal for the centerpiece is all sewn together, and is very random....but you can see that!
This shows the back and all my random stitchery! LOL
Til now, I've mostly used sari to wrap backless bezels on cuffs:
But this hop has opened a whole new world of possibilities to me! I'm thinking of weaving and wrapping it into many more designs!
AND THEN...of course! Meep wanted to get in on the action. So here is Meep with HIS sari ribbon design:
On the windowsill in the office. He's put on his debonnaire handsome cat look.
On the back of my chair, one of his fave places. You can see it a bit better. It consists of a colorful polymer clay pendant and a fussy sari ribbon around his neck....with a big froofy bow.
Here it is close-up:
I have it hanging on a door now, it's become a new fave toy. He loves to go by and bat at it...
Or maybe he's just mad because he doesn't like how it came out. Hmmm
Here is the full list of participants for this blog, copied from yesterday's post after we fixed and checked all the links....you may or may not be able to click on them as hot links, as sometimes when a list is copied that feature becomes unavailable. BUT! All links are good, they've been checked and checked again.
Be sure to 'hop around' and check everyone out and if at all possible, leave a comment. This is a kindness to fellow participants and kudos to them for all their hard work. Some really had to think outside the box on this one, since fiber was not their thing.
And another special thanks to Hilary Frye, who opened my eyes to the possibilities of using fiber and more mixed media material in jewelry making. ;-)
