Materials and Tools:
3 yards 7/16" Terrazo, Hanah Silk ribbon
3 yards 1/8" Terrazo, Hanah Silk satin cording
2" circle matte board
2" circle thin batting
2-1/2" circle of thin fabric
5/8" - 3/4" fancy button
jewelry findings for closure
1. Make 12 folded roses from the 7/16" silk ribbon, referring to the instructions in Gibb's book. Each rose uses 4-1/2" of silk ribbon.
2. Make six knot roses from the satin cord. Each rose uses about 2-1/4" of cord.
3. Lightly glue the batting to the matte board circle. Cover the circle with fabric by stitching around the fabric and pulling the gathering tightly over the batting and board.
4. Glue/stitch the button to the center front of the fabric-covered circle.
5. Sew the satin silk cord around the outer edge of the fabric-covered circle.
6. Make a small loop from the satin cord and glue it to the top and back of the pendant. This is for the neck cord.
7. Glue six folded roses around the button.
8. Alternate six knot roses and six folded roses, and glue them around the outer area of the pendant.
9. Cover the back of the pendant with ultra suede, leather, fabric or felt.
10. Slip the neck cord through the loop and tie a simple knot or use jewelry findings for the closure.
This graphic flower pendant starts with a scrap piece of stained glass — a surprising element to this modern necklace.
