Another new cuff

I finished a new cuff tonight!

Made with greenish turquoise cabs, two of my own glass cabochons and two red marble cabochons.  I used vintage pre-WWII silver plated cylinder beads.  The bracelet measures 1 1/2 inches wide.  Perfect for bigger cabs.

New bead embroidered cuff

Another finish for me!  I started and finished  this cuff this weekend.  I started Friday night and finished about 30 minutes ago.  The bracelet is only 3/4" wide so it was easy to design.  I always design as I go.  I don't draw designs on the beading foundation.  I may try that on a bigger piece sometime, but I like just designing on the fly.

The cabochons are all glass, not made by me.   This is one of the first, maybe THE first cuff that hasn't any of my glass cabs on it.  But I love the colors!   This pictures are not the best, but you get the idea.  I call the cuff Amethyst Ice.
