Personalized Silk Ribbon Wrap Bracelets are here - With a SPECIAL OFFER

One of the hottest boho trends right now is wrap bracelets. Risky Beads is stocking up on both leather and silk ribbon wraps.  This post focuses on the silk ribbon wraps and contains a special offer at the end!!  All ribbon wraps are $22.95 and come with either an aluminum or copper bar or an aluminum or copper button.  Each option holds a max of 30 characters each. Be sure to count spaces and symbols into that number.  There are 9 ribbon colors to choose from as well! Chart is at end of this post.

You can also purchase just an extra ribbon using this listing.  Full chart is below: for the special offer good through Sunday, 4/21....

When you purchase any silk ribbon wrap, you can get a free leather cord in either black, brown, copper, or silver.  The leather will be 3 feet long just like the ribbons and will give you some more options to wear your bar or button.  Just to be clear, the offer is for the leather only, not an additional button or bar.


Purchase a silk ribbon wrap and mention FREE LEATHER CORD along with your color in notes to seller during checkout.  If no color choice is given, we will choose for you. This is NOT a coupon code.  Just mention it in the white box in your cart and we'll include it with your order.  Offer valid thru Midnight, 4/21 (Sunday). 

Happy Shopping!!

New Studio Pics - Creative Bliss!

I'm so excited about the new tables for my studio!!  My grandmother's kitchen table was only going to last so long when I was hammering on it every day, so I got my handy brother-in-law to make two new and bigger tables for me, and he did a fantastic job!  So, for reference, here is a picture of the 'old' studio.  Notice the size of the table and the fact that there's just one!  This posed a problem when I hired my assistant last fall.  She had to work at a separate table that faced the window, so I spent six months talking to her pony tail, lol. (Eventually we'll take that abandoned little table and turn it into a shipping station!)

So, I designed a new work space with two tables that face each other and are buffered with a little bit of foam padding.  This way we can face each other while we work, but not transfer motion from one table to the other.  As you can see, the orders are piling up!!

So here's a picture of my side of the table with fonts everywhere and my tell tale masking-tape-recycle project wherein I refuse to throw a piece away until it has lost all of its stickiness, lol.  

 And here's a pic of Blair's side of the table which is noticeably neater than mine!  This arrangement works out so much better because we can pass tools and wisdom back and forth while we work.  Can you tell that we are in love with Handy Tape?

And here's a wider pic of the whole new setup!  We have about 30% more table space now and are very, very happy!  Which is good because we're getting busy. Having two tables also means that we can rearrange our work space if needed, like if we get tired of staring at each other, lol.

Our Mother's Day order deadline (U.S. orders) is May 1st so order now!  Lots of ideas here.
