These stones are rooted in the earth but share the color of the sky. Line them up along a lovely silk ribbon for a light floating quality. Perfect with beachwear or on your winter trip to the desert.

How would you stop the pendants all bunching together. Do you need to squash the top of the loop, or glue them in place, or something else?

I'm a new beader, it looks easy, what kind of glue would you use so it holds and dosn't stain the silk ribbon  ? ? ?    Gayle

If you use glue, only use a dab of G-S hypo cement, one of my favorite jewelry glues.  However, if I were making this and the loops weren't tight enough to hold in place, I would make the ribbon longer so you can tie a simple knot on each side of the 5 dangles.  Knots can be functional and decorative as well.
