Caring for Ribbon Jewelry


, ,

All of Little Mae Designs uses ribbon. I love it and it’s my signature item – that’s why I carry so many colors of it! Ribbon gives jewelry something different – color, texture, more interest.

Taking care of ribbon jewelry… All ribbon used on Little Mae Designs pieces are high quality double sided satin ribbon. Since ribbon is fabric it is subject to wrinkle. You can iron out wrinkles. I personally use a hair straightener and it works wonderfully. The ends have been treated so they should never fray. If for any reason you need to shorten your ties – cut them at the same slant and use a lighter to lightly and kind of quickly burn the edge. If at any time you should get a snag in your ribbon – carefully damp the area and lightly smooth or tug the snag out.

I used to tie all my necklaces in a bow for looks when packaging. I never received one complaint about it, but after thinking about it I realized I was deciding on where my customer would tie it unless they smoothed out the crease from where is was tied. So now I leave the ties alone – may not be as pretty in packaging, but makes them ready to use right out of the packaging 🙂 So I suggest when not wearing to leave the ties untied as well, and make sure lay your Little Mae Design carefully out in your jewelry box.


Here Comes The Bride

I came across this picture and fell in love with it! How cute this little princess is in Ugg boots – so perfect for fall weddings!!! But what I really fell in love with was her holding the precious “Here Comes The Bride” sign instead of flowers. I can just picture her walking down the aisle all adorable with all the awws! over her. I can also picture her wearing Little Mae’s simple pearl drop earrings, Priscilla 😉

I get so many special requests – and one popular one is using smaller pearls. That’s why I created Rosalie, which used 6mm pearls. It’s a gorgeous and delicate little necklace that has a satin ribbon tie in the back.

Adult sized Rosalie using ivory pearl and navy ribbon.

Child sized Rosalie using white pearls and light pink ribbon.

It’s here! Introducing Sabrina…

Due to popular demand – I now am proud to announce that I have created a ribbon necklace that doesn’t have a ribbon tie and is still adjustable! Inspired by my popular Lily… Introducing Sabrina!

Like Lily, it has large 14mm pearls with 5/8″ satin ribbon but with a lobster clasp and extension chain. Perfect if you love Lily – but need a shorter option that is adjustable 🙂
