I am not sure whether to call these beaded brocade ribbon beads or pendants.
They were made from the last of my vintage brocade sampler that I purchased in Paris in 2009.
The sampler would have been what a ribbon salesperson would show when they met with store owners. The collection was gorgeous. I made no eye contact with the price tag and simply pulled out my wallet.
My planned project for the ribbon was this necklace. I had a wonderful time beading each of the sampler colours. That post is linked here.
This time I had smaller leftover pieces to work with so I opted to showcase the flower as much as possible. The beaded edges are just something I do when I watch television.
The necklace hangs really nicely.
I can now say I used every bit of my vintage brocade ribbon purchase!
