A New "My Delightful Obsession" Creation - Ribbon Fireball Necklace
I have been in-love with both the Firestone Necklace as well as with the Ribbon Necklaces from J Crew. And while playing around with my beads, I came up with this creation, the Ribbon Firestone Necklace.
This hand-knotted necklace consists of 12mm Champagne colored Stone beads interspersed with 10mm Rhinestone Fireballs that form a deep "U" shape complete with grosgrain ribbon ties. The necklace may be worn high, meaning the ribbon is tied at the jump rings so that the Stones meet in the back of the neck; or the necklace may be worn low (as modelled), whereby a portion of the grosgrain ribbon is visible. I personally like my ribbon tied off centre so that the bow shows.
I made this necklace to wear it with my Champagne Silk Dupioni Skirt specifically. I lucked out to find that it goes with tons in my wardrobe.
How do you like my new creation?
