New Bead Embroidery Cuff


So I started this new cuff a few days ago but I have not made too much progress.  I wasn't liking it much but I am continuing to work and I am liking it a bit better now.  I think the trick is to not give up too soon but work a little more and see how you feel - so I think I am going to finish this one.  I went to see the Van Gogh show at the Philadelphia Museum and got so inspired, about painting of course, but also beading.  I am thinking some art inspired cuffs - we shall see how that goes ; )

Heart of the Matter


My latest pendant and necklace "Heart of the Matter".  The focal of this piece consists of a polymer clay heart and beads, silver beads and spacers plus wire. The heart and beads were made by Ronna Sarvas Weltman which I purchased a long time ago - I just didn't know what I wanted to use them for.  I was looking through my beads the other day and came across the heart and beads and decided the time was right so I wired them up with some silver beads and a little curl on the end.   The necklace is a spiral rope in cream and bronze seed beads to compliment but not over power the heart.  I think it works and this piece is in my Etsy Shop here
