A kindly shopkeeper (sounds like the beginning of a Dickens novel. . .) gave me a deal on some pale pink tape binding, which she had treated to give it a wrinkled finish. I held onto it for a few months until today. As I was paging through a magazine of necklace ideas, I was wishing I had the silk ribbon specified for a particular project, then remembered the pink binding. . .
With lots of changes (different beads, different ribbon, different closure), here is what I made. I call it "Love, Simply."
If you're inspired by this design to create something, please send me a picture and I'll post it here. If you're selling it online, send me a link and I'll post that!
