Bracelet - Maybe

Not a great picture but it is getting late in the day. These are two of the components for my next project. I am hoping this will eventually transform into a bracelet. We shall see how it goes - I have been having problems from the start but I refuse to give up so we shall see on this one. If somehow it all comes together I think it could be really nice but then again it may just plain suck ; ) Hey I am not big on planning.

Black Magick - Bead Embroidery Cuff





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.

Something New

Sweet - this is the start of my next beading project. I am excited with it so far but as usual I don't have any plan on how this is going to work out - so we shall see! I do know it is going to be all black and silver and I do have a name picked out already. This is not a great photo - it is raining like crazy here at the lake today so I had to take what I could get in terms of lighting - good thing our fireworks display was last night.
