So I started the cuff in the top picture and it was just not working for me - I felt the beading was over powering the cab. I cut it up and ripped it all out and started fresh and now my cuff is becoming a pendant/necklace. Although neither photo is very good the bottom is more true to the yellow color in the cab. I am not even close to finishing but I am much happier with the pendant version. With the cab becoming a pendant it can be the star that it really wanted to be.
