  1. I am desperately trying to find out what the name of the wide, jewel-toned “shiny ribbon” is that Laura Bryant is using in this episode. I’ve looked and looked online and can’t see to find the exact one. I’ve seen this “ribbon” used in the past by Barry Klein also. If anyone can point me in the direction of what it is, I’d sure appreciate it. Have a great Friday.
