The Mushroom Fairy and a Charm Club
Introducing: The Mushroom Fairy:
I created this necklace last night while dreaming about a little fairy floating among the wild mushrooms in the forest. The idea was inspired by this awesome new ribbon that I ordered from Antica. It's the prettiest mushroom brown color and matches perfectly with this ceramic mushroom pendant from Gaea! (*thanks Gaea!!)
The creamy etched lamp work beads are Cindy Hoo. I've been hoarding them for months!
Another fabulous designer that uses ribbon in their work, is Nina Bagley. She always pairs it perfectly with other mixed media elements, like seed beads, and oxidized silver, and other fiber elements.

This is a great example of Nina's use of ribbon. I love the teal color. I ordered some pretty egg blue ribbon like the mushroom brown. I am looking forward to playing around with this next.

I was lucky enough to have a little guardian angel reading my blog (THANK YOU N) and I will now be part of the Charm Club from Andrew's Blog! YESSSSS!
