|Finished Free Form Cuff|
Here is the final outcome of my free form cuff. As you may remember I wasn't sure if wanted to embelish this cuff or leave it as it was. Now I got a lot of feed back both on the blog and on Facebook, so I decided to leave it be, sort of.
I changed out the button. Not that I didn't like the button before, I just wanted something a little different. I took the center part out of the button and created my own button. I used a dark blue swarvoski bicone to hold the button in place and then created a little bead garden around it with the silver and gold seed beads and those great vintage beads.
I'm pretty happy with this outcome. I like how the new button toggle really finishes the piece. It brings everything together and it's kinda fun.
This is my entry in the August EBW challenge Silver and Gold. I wasn't missing out on this challenge. So I got my challenge piece done early and got the pictures done as soon as I stitched the last bead. No more lazy me. I'll post something as soon as I get it listed (see I still might miss the deadline) and I'll post a link when voting starts. I know I'll be up against some stiff competition with my simple free form cuff. But I'm happy with my entry.
