August Challenge Voting - Etsy Beadweavers

Well it's that time again. Time to vote for the August Etsy-Beadweavers challenge. There were so many fantastic entries this month. This month's theme was ART DECO. One of my favorite design periods.

Here was my entry for this month. It was based on a beautiful stained glass window found in the Hotel Mercedes in Paris France. It's all hand beaded using tiny little Delica beads in two drop peyote stitch. I then sewed it to a nice soft leather cuff and cut the ends to match the curves of the design. It's all finished off with gold eyelets and a brown ribbon. I really love my creation for this month, I hope everyone else does too. You can see it in my etsy store. It's called Latte at Hotel Mercedes

Your piece is amazing! I'm always curious about how long it takes to make things--if you care to share that info. Good luck in the the challenge.

I'm really bad at keeping track of actual hours, but a cuff usually takes me three days (I work during the day, and bead at night, or whenever I get a second or two). Two days for the beadwork and then one day to sew and finish it up. Even though it seems like the sewing takes longer b/c I loathe that part (People who can sew amaze me) :D
