I am really enjoying these recycled materials I’ve been working with lately. Mostly because of the unpredictability of the final product. The colors in the banana silk yarn are so varied, that just when I think, “Oh, it’s gonna be a red bracelet,” some yellow pops up, then more red, and then I remember that I’m just making a bracelet and not a rope with which to escape Rapunzel’s tower. Anyway, this is just a basic crochet chain, but with all the colors and little loose ends, I think this is quite a unique bracelet. You can click on the photo to see it on Etsy.

I had to trim a little off the end of the bracelet, and not wanting to throw it away, I cut the scrap in half and made a pair of earrings! It’s been forever since I made earrings, and I think it’s something I want to get back into.

Finally, I got around to making an infinity scarf/necklace with that new burgundy sari silk ribbon I got a couple of weeks ago. I also recently got some little hammered antiqued brass rings, so I used those to group together the different strands of ribbon. This is another item that I was excited to see the finished product, because there are so many more colors than just burgundy, like deep purple, pink, peach, brick red, and brown.

I don’t think I’m quite done with this stuff, so stay tuned next week to see what else I come up with!
