Bead Journal Project

For March I did a mostly Orange cuff. It is felted to a piece of commercial felt then Machine Embroidered. I'm trying to remember to use the wonderful pearls I keep buying, so some were added next. Seed beads embellish them. I'm finding that regular snaps make a good closure-safe and don't show when the cuff is worn. It is also going along with my idea to use things in my stash.

I'm so pleased that people liked my Running Stitch sampler. To me to work it was relaxing. Thanks for all the comments.

I like your combination of felting and beads. It's interesting that the simplest closure works so well.

What a great cuff this is Sandy. Normally I'm not drawn to these colors but I really like this.

Superb, as always Sandy. The enlargement shows your beautiful composition and colours. This is a simple idea, made spectacular by your creativity. Thanks for always sharing so willingly.

Delightful cuff, Sandy!!! The colors are luscious, the gold stitching perfect, and the pearls stand out as a main attraction! Robin A
