"Lagoon" beadwork cuff



This is the latest RAW stitch cuff. Strangest color! The base beads are Toho - Purple lined teal - and when you put actual teal beads next to it, they are only a shade off, but held against a large swatch of steel blue material, they closely match. I've used Aqua Azaro 4mm fire polished and the 6mm fire polished beads are turquoise with a metallic half-coat. Lots of tiny plain sterling and Bali sterling beads in this one, too. The colors brought to mind deep water glinting silver with moonlight.

I've decided that I have enough samples done to show - and now I'm going to do three row samples of different colors.

Meanwhile I'm chomping at the bit to try some experiments. Too many ideas. Too little time.

I have GOT to make something like this. This is a perfect 'Bling' piece. You know, the one that will bring pizazz to your whole ensemble. Do people still say pizazz?

I still say pizazz. But your safe, Bling is still in use. Thanks Jewels -it's RAW stitch using a base unit of 8 beads - I find that's perfect for embellishing!
