Beaded Cuff

From the comments I already have-thank you by the way-I realized I should have added more technical information.

I felted the roving to a piece of felt a little bigger than the finished size. First I tack things in place by hand, then I take them to the embellisher to really felt them in place.

Once the beading for the center is in place, I backed the cuff with a piece of synthetic suede by lightly fusing it. Remember to do this with the beading cushioned of a bath towel, so it doesn't get hurt. My beads are glass, so melting them wasn't an issue. Then I finished with the edging.

Loved this piece - the background is a really amazing flow of colour. Can't wait to see the next ones.
