Dark Red Pendant on Ribbon

Today we'll look more closely at one of the special pieces from mdmButiik shop. It's not very common to add ribbons in jewelry for me... This one is a pendant that comes with a ribbon but can be separated and worn with a chain or attach with a pin on a piece of clothing. This dark red pendant on ribbon has two parts both covered in sparkly rhinestones!

I'm thinking it can be attached to a hairdo as well with a hair pin - imagine it sparkle! Dark red pendant can be worn around the neck like a collar to get that historical look but also on a long chain as well. This pendant has a contemporary ribbon in length that allows to wear it around the neck. We used vintage and new glass and crystal rhinestones in garnet red color.  Glass beads are vintage from Czechoslovakia!

Vintage Saphiret Sapphirine Glass Cabochons

One of my best finds! These come in their original package with a color name Sapphirine. Flat backed, unfoiled and with frosted finish. Sappharine glass is a combination of brown with blue. How interesting, the hue of blue is inconsistent in these stones, from aqua to sapphire to almost purple?

Vintage Sapphirine Saphiret Glass Cabochons

So happy to find these for I've searched for Saphiret or Sapphirine glass for jewelry making. I'll probably use silver colored settings for these so the silver color metal will glow through the stone and present the color play of blue and brown!
