This is the amazing Venetian glass heart that my darling friend, Mary Ann, brought me from Italy.  The ribbon is silk dupioni that I got at Ornamentea in Raleigh.  Love it, love it, love it!

Ribbon Necklace

I wanted to use ribbon for a necklace and found this gorgeous brown silk at Sam Flax recently.  Soon after, I saw this necklace on Cynthia Deis' blog.  I knew I would soon be visiting her shop in Raleigh, so I collected bits and baubles and took off for North Carolina.  I love wearing this one; it makes me feel very bohemian.  If anyone has tips on taking good photos of jewelry, please let me know.  My pics are not the best.  Thanks for looking.
