About Me

My photo
I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I am still living in the area, although I spent 3 years in Germany (Stuttgart). Fighting the age long battle against the bulge. Some days I am winning, some days the bulge is winning. I hang out with my dogs (three toy fox terrierists) and husband.

Bead embroidered cuff

The bead embroidery on this cuff is made with size 15 seed beads. They are small. I wore this in Milwaukee this year.

hey Liz, it's Soren-who-was-a-bbtbbb! that is GORGEOUS! is there just a metal cuff inside or something? I made an embroidered cuff with no frame that just snaps shut, but i'm thinking something inside would be better.

Once a BBTBBB, always a BBTBBB!! Nice of you to stop by. There is a metal frame in there that I bought from Dick Blick (on line because the store 3 miles away doesn't carry jewelry supplies), along with a bender.

It's ultra suede fabric covered with the bead embroidery and then self lined with the same fabric.

I'm pretty proud of it for a first attempt with no formal lesson!!
