Ribbon has been used in jewelry from historical times. The Pearl Dangle Charms and Tubular Natural Tiger Eye beads update the look and appeal.
• You will be adding a necklace that is light and airy like your wardrobe for the Spring and Summer times.
• The Yellow (beige) Ribbon and Natural Tiger Eye are neutral in color and can be a part of any wardrobe.
• The necklace is right for the office as well as an evening outing.
• The Chatoyance of the brownish Tiger Eye beads adds a lot of pizzazz to the necklace and enhances your skin tone whatever color it may be.
I was looking at some pictures from a Jane Austen novel and found some the illustrations with ribbon chokers. I also see a lot of ribbon jewelry in magazines. So I made my own version of the ribbon necklace and added the beads and charms.
The necklace is 22” inches long and the barrel shaped Tiger Eye beads are 6x2 mm in size. The freshwater pearls are 4 mm. The ribbon is a silk/nylon combination. The necklace comes with a lobster clasp. The jump rings are the closed kind.
Care: Tiger Eye is 7 on the Mohr scale of hardness. The ribbon should last a long time but may need to be spot cleaned with gentle soap and may need some pressing to take the wrinkles out. Pearls cannot be exposed to chemicals like hair spray. Wiping with a soft cloth should do fine
