So the top photo is the finished pink cuff - it was a long time coming but I guess it turned out OK - it sure was that learning experience I have been talking about.
The second photo is the face I got as part of the Valentine's Giveaway from Joan Tucker at Off Center Productions. I am just beading a simple edging around the face as I want it to be the focal for the necklace I am planning. Right now it looks like the colors will be turquoise, cream and chocolate brown. I haven't quite thought out the necklace portion yet or even how I will join the focal but it is coming along nicely.
Don't forget to see the post below for my painting giveaway - just leave me a comment.
