Born on the Bayou - Bead Embroidery Cuff

This is my latest cuff Born on the Bayou. Love the colors - lime, yellow green, black, green with a 30mm round Kambaba Jasper Cab as a focal. It is listed in my Etsy Shop here.

Almost There

Well I am finished with the major beading portion of my latest cuff. Now I need to attach it to the cuff band and edge. I love the coloring of this one and have a great name picked out.

Cuff - More Work

A little more work done on my bead embroidery cuff. I was hoping to work on it yesterday but that didn't happen - maybe today. I really like how this is shaping up and I love the coloring. I am having a really hard time getting a good image of the focal - too much glare in this picture. I need to work on the right side to even out the design and see where it is heading. I never know where I am going next with these cuffs - I just put down the beads that feel right - if they don't look right up they come ; )

New Cuff in Progress

It is a cool damp day here in PA so I started a new bead embroidery cuff. So far I am excited with it - although I have done as much ripping out as I have beading. I like the color combination of this one and hope it continues to go well.

Royal Flush - Bead Embroidery Cuff

New cuff just finished - lousy photos ; ) This is a bead embroidery cuff in shades of dark red, pink and golds. I love making these maybe I should start wearing them. I am starting a new wider one in shades of black and green - hope it comes out as good as this one.

Bead Embroidery Cuff in Progress

This is a new cuff I am working on - I have ripped it out twice so far but I think I finally have a plan. I hope to get a lot of work done on this one today as it is cool and windy outside - good beading weather. This is not my favorite colors but a good use of the focal.
