Adding ribbon is one way to add color to jewelry designs. Cyndi Lavin of Beading Arts has a marvelous idea on how to combine ribbon and punch up the design with beads and irregular gemstone nugget.  Her wire wrapped ribbon and gemstone nugget necklace tutorial shows how she ties in all the elements!

If you look closely, she even wrapped filigrees around the necklace. Wire wrapping around the ribbon also helps keep them secure and neat.

Love this eclectic look which is so versatile.  Every necklace will be unique!!
