New Cuff Started
And the cuff fever continues. This is number 5. The focal is a large Kambaba Jasper as are the 2 smaller stones. They are black with a lot of very cool moss green markings - really interesting. I am making this one pretty dark - lots of olive and darker green matte and metalic beads. The lightest I am going in this on is the lime colored accents. This is what I am learning about values - I do not want to go very light in this cuff - like say a cream color accent as I feel it would be spotty and take away from the focal. The only contrast is a very muted orange size 8 that I am using sparingly. So far I like this one - I will do some more work on it later today - it is 1 1/2 inches wide. I think I have a name but want to wait a bit before I committ to it.
