I made these for Christmas gifts last year. I think they were well received. Each of my children have 3 teachers so I tried to come up with something I could give to each that was still nice and slightly different.

The hand dyed silk ribbon comes from Jamn Glass. They are beautiful in real life. She handstitches the edges! Wow!
The idea came from a Bead magazine which escapes me right now but I’ll dig it up.
This was my first attempt at beading. I don’t enjoy it that much (it’s time consuming and so much harder than it looks). So I tip my hat off to all you wonderful beaders out there! 🙂
