I like this ribbon and gemstone necklace tutorial from Halcraft for a number of reasons.  The boho chic design combines one of my favorite color duos - green and purple.  The choice of the sage ribbon meant it teamed up beautifully with the vintage brass findings, chain and wire.  The chain also ties in the gemstone nuggets with the rest of the necklace. 
The ribbon lengths were also doubled up which gives the ribbon portion more definition than if it was just a single layer. I also thought the wire wrapping on the ribbon gave a good finish to the design.

There are so very many ways to incorporate ribbon into designs, not just use them like chains for necklaces.  So get your creative juices going and try something different.
