I bought the glass flower ring and matching beads at the Milwaukee bead show this summer from Kennebunkport Bead Art. I was unsure how I was going to wire the ring into a necklace or bracelet, then came upon some silk ribbon that I thought would work much easier then wire. I like how it turned out, but when wearing it the beads flip to the underside of my wrist. Need to add some weight near the clasp?? The beads that are wire wrapped on the 2nd strand of the bracelet are czech glass.
