Mayan Treasure Cuff Bracelet - Part I

I purchases the Bead Embroidery Cuff "Mayan Treasure" from Beverly Herman - No Easy Beads some time ago. But I just didn't feel ready to work on it or try my hand at any serious bead embroidery. I am going to experiment and try new things over the summer and decided my first project would be this cuff. Above is my first session two nights ago.

This is what I completed last night. I am very happy with the way the cuff is coming along (since I don't know what I am doing). Well that is not really true - I do have a nice set of directions that came with the cuff.
Here is a close up of the center portion. I have art class tonight so I won't get much done when I get home - it will be too late.
