Fiber Jewelry- A Kimono Fabric Bead Necklace

This summer, I learned how to make these fabric beads at Mary Stanley's Charm School. Here's the necklace that I completed. One of my goals for our Portland Art Collective Open Doors Show in December is to make more fiber jewelry. It's light weight, different and fun to create.

I love your necklace, Paula! Can't wait to see what you'll make for the show. These will be a hit, for sure.

Thanks, Jan and Suzanne, for your comments. The yarn used comes from Habu Textiles out of NYC. Their selection of Japanese fibers will amaze you.

I love the old kimono fabric, it's soft and a little industrial, cool

Paula, this is gorgeous! Your color choice is fabulous. I think these would look great on darkened metal chains too.
