Did you know I also have an ArtFire supply store?

Last last year I set up an ArtFire supply store. I have called is Textures. Such a great word Textures...Isn't it? I think it has a perfect meaning for the things I love, to much and and want to share. My latest find I love so much I feel greedy and want to keep them all myself. But I cannot, so good for you. But I really cannot wait to enamel some pieces and make some jewelry using them.

Stunning hand dyed Shibori Ribbon from Shibori Girl Studio, Glennis Dolce. Shibori is a Japanese term for several methods of dyeing cloth with a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, or compressing it.

This technique is applied to bias cut 100% silk satin ribbon, which is carefully pole wrapped and dyed and over-dyed multiple times to create stunning, vibrant color variations between the pleats and throughout the ribbon resulting a three dimensional work of art!
I will surely post my creations when I get them made up.
Aren't they Luscious? See them here too.

The ribbons are stunning! I can't wait to see what you make with them. I especially love the pink-rose ribbons. I think a necklace with your enameled circles would be lovely. ;-)
