What I've Been Working On!!!

At the beginning of the month, my brother contacted me and said he worked with a woman that would love to have a cuff made, he then sketched up a simple design and sent it to me. She has a son that is autistic, so she wanted his name and puzzle pieces; in black and silver. So this is how it turned out. I think it looks great.


Then, a couple of weeks ago, I was asked by a group of friends (all are teachers) if I could make a few cuffs. They all work specifically with autistic children and wanted cuffs. So I worked on a few different designs and these are the two I came up with.

The first one is just puzzle pieces. I like this one because the colors are so vibrant.


The second one was a little bit more challenging. I wanted to do the ribbon, but was having problems getting puzzle shaped pieces on such a small scale. I finally just decided to leave it like this. They are not puzzle pieces, but I think anyone looking at it can tell what it is supposed to represent.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this one. I thought it might look ridiculous, and possible like multicolored camo or something. But I really, really like this one. The ribbon really stands out on the crisp white background. And it looks great on the wrist. I'm so happy with how this one turned out.

Isn't it funny how you can be convinced that you are not going to like something, and then when it's all done, it's one of you favorites?

I'm going to be making a few of these up soon. And I've decided to give part of the proceeds to autism research.

Kind regards,
