More Fused Plastic

I found this really cool place in Buenos Aires that sold vintage and antique ribbons and buttons and bought some velvet ribbon. I love the color and texture. I think it is made out of rayon and not polyester as it is nowadays. I was stuck for some time on the kind of closure I should make for it. I wanted something adjustable and easy to put on and take off. I finally designed a simple closure that works really well and does not have the two ends hanging to the side as you can see on the first photo. I've just uploaded it to my Etsy shop.

I sold these earrings almost immediately. I will be making more soon.
