New products from Rock Ribbons at BiDM!

Deborah from Rock Ribbons has been busy experimenting with new techniques to bring shoppers some exciting new products at the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market on 4 September!

"I've been working on a new (for me) technique called Kumihimo. The term Kumihimo in Japanese language means the gathering of threads. The literal translation of Kumihimo means the 'coming together (kumi) of threads (himo)'. This technique involves using several highly developed looms for specific types of braids.

For this collection, I have woven together 8 strands of 3mm satin ribbon. Each necklace is highlighted with a hand crafted murano glass teardrop pendant and finished with a sterling silver or gold filled magnetic clasps. Also each necklace comes with a matching bracelet to complete the look."

To check out Rock Ribbons new products in person head to the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market
Saturday 4 September, 9 am–2 pm
St Augustine's Church Hall and Grounds
Racecourse Road, Hamilton

See you there!
