Sari Silk Wrapped Beads

Sari Silk Beads on Leather Cord NecklaceMore sari silk love here on the ol’ blog!

This is a project I did on PBS television’s Beads, Baubles and Jewels last December.  Time really does fly!  It is based off a project in my book, Necklaceology.DIY Sari Silk NecklaceBasically, you wrap big macrame beads with sari silk and then embellish them with stitchery and tiny seed beads.  You’ll need a tapestry needle to thread the silk ribbon through.  The needle will run through the center of the bead and around and round.  Put a little glue inside the bead to keep the ribbon from unraveling.Sari Silk Wrapped Beads with LeatherYou can use the tapestry needle for the leather too.  I’m using Beadalon’s Indian leather and spacer beads here.Sari Silk Wrapped BeadsHere’s a link the the Beads, Baubles and Jewels page with the project, photos, and instructions.
