Vintage sari ribbon bracelet

Years ago I made jewelry in between film jobs. Then it was made of gold, sterling silver and semi-precious stones and was sold in boutiques in NYC and Brooklyn. On a whim today I made this bracelet from hand dyed vintage silk sari ribbon, some gold beads I had lying around and a wood button as a closure.

I wish I could use all the bits and bobs that have collected around me over the years before acquiring new materials. Essentially I’m a wabi-sabi minimalist with a touch of collector when it comes to things that might work in an art project someday…
