New project - Bead Embroidery Cuff


Started working on my next project this bead embroidery cuff - it is all earth tones and right now is further along than this photo.  I love doing these - I just pick a focal, lay out a bunch of beads that I think will go with that focal and just start beading - no planning, no sweat.  I still need to think of a name for this one.

Hi,Jean:-)
Meanwhile...when I was struggling with the almost two bracelets and had the poignant 'adventure' - You have invented the new design of the cuff:-)))
I'm positive-it will be wonderful,as the beginning shows.
Bear Hugs and...Happy Beading to You-Halinka-

Hi Jean,

Your work is just gorgeous! I love to bead in a free-form way, too. I'm curious: what are you using for backing? Is it already colored or did you dye it?

Thanks and cheers,
