Black Magick my latest bead embroidery cuff. The focal is a metal cut button surrounded by size 8, 11,15 seed beads in black and silver. This one was different for me as the complete cuff is all stop beads rather than just bead embroidery stitches. It really makes for a LOT of texture and interest. I like the fact that it is really a monochromatic piece - black and silver - it is very elegant. So now I need to pick out my next project - I am thinking maybe something simple for a change but I do love my bead embroidery! I don't do too much in the summer - I seem to just like to sit by the lake and read but that's OK as long as I am at least thinking about beading.
