New Cuff!

Do you remember that little teaser shot I posted the other day?  One of some of the projects I've been working on.  It's okay if you don't that's it's not that big of deal.  ;-)

Well if you do remember it and were wondering what the finished product looked like (and even if you don't but just want to see some beady eye candy), well here it is.

I love it.  I've really been enjoying bead embroidery.  Who would have thought that I would be saying that.  Just a few years ago I loathed it with a passion.  I tried on project and vowed never to try it again.  It sickened me.  I would stick with my trusty peyote or herringbone or RAW stitches.  I didn't need no stinking bead embroidery.
 
Oh how time changes you.   Look at me lately, I'm on a bead embroidery roll.  Every time I start a project I think of another one I want to try.   There's just something about it that makes me happy.  It's like painting or something (and we all know I could paint a picture to save my life).

This cuff was just something quirky I wanted to try.  I didn't really have a design or pattern, I just glued some cabs down and went.  I didn't even know I was going to make it in this shape, the wavy shape.  I figured I would just make one in normal rectangle cuff pattern, but no, I ventured out of that dull, boring shape and got all crazy.  Now the possibilities are endless.  Who knows what I'll make next.

I love the colors! Very original design. I haven't tried bead embroidery (yet?), but it looks like a lot of fun.

Thank you. Bead embroidery has really opened up my creativity. Once you start, you might not stop. ;-)
