Had this piece accepted into the Green Jewelry: Upcycled/Recycled Show at 18 Hands Gallery. The technique is kumihimo and it is made with recycled sari silk. I just loved the colors in the silk and found some beads to accent the piece beautifully. The tassel has great character. All the pieces of silk have wonderful raveling. You can play with the ends for hours.
