I acquire these silk treasures from a good friend who hand paints every silk strand within color batches. She has been painting on silk for over 20 years, using tried and true recipes for colors based in her rich European heritage.
I was interested in the silks when I first saw them from afar. I fell in love with them when they were in my hands. And when I used one to tie around my neck to hang one of my porcelain pendants from, I was in heaven…
Simple, beautiful, soft, breathable, highest quality I have ever found, and they can be used for just about anything imaginable, and are perfect just as they are as a jewelry accent (necklace, bracelet - just wrap and tie). If they get wrinkly or crinkly, simply wet then lay flat. You can also use a low temperature iron on them the same way you would iron a silk blouse (use another fabric on top of the silk).
The details of this listing for (1) Silk Knot Bundle of Fairy Ribbons (higher price point than the 2mm ribbons!):
There are 10 individual Fairy Ribbons in each silk knot bundle that measure 40-42" long each, and about 2cm wide.
This listing is for the Fall Fashion 2011 color palette from the first photo (not exact match to Pantone's colors, but close in the "handmade" way).
Here are the Fairy Silk Ribbons that are in the palette:
#7 Golden Mustard (*Bamboo)
#221 Peach Cobbler (Emberglow)
#219 Honeysuckle (*Honeysuckle)
#223 Concord (Phlox)
#210 Light Sage (*Cedar)
#56 Cerulean (*Deep Teal)
#64 Chocolate (Coffee Liqueur)
#65 Light Tan (*Nougat)
#91 Lilac (Orchard Hush)
#212 Denim (Quarry)
The individual Fairy Silk Ribbons retail at $5 each, but as a bundle of 10 strands, gets discounted to $3.70 each, so $37 for this Fairy Ribbon knot bundle.
Silky and Fairy Ribbons Retail at $5 each.
5 for $20 ($4 each)
10 for $37 ($3.70 each)
30 for $108 ($3.60 each)
50 for $170 ($3.40 each)
100 for $300 ($3.00 each)
*If you want multiple knot bundles or to include different kinds of silks within a knot, please send me a convo with the qty, color number/name and type of silk (2mm, Fairy, Silky).
I price it out according to the total qty of your order, then break the price per silk down into the appropriate price point, then calculate the new total.
For example. If you wanted 33 silks total:
Say 12 of the 2mm, 11 of the Fairy, and 10 of the Silky:
2mm silks at the (30) price point = $1.80 per strand x 12 = $21.60
Fairy Ribbons at the (30) price point = $3.60 per strand x 11 = $39.60
Silky Ribbons at the (30) price point = $3.60 per strand x 10 = $36.00
$21.60 +$39.60 +$36 = $97.20 + s&h (which is usually $3 for USPS First Class) = $100.20
I have two main silk sections in this shop:
