FINALLY! A year later, the cuff is now done.
I posted pictures of this project a year ago here, thinking that I was close to having it done.
I put time in it now and then, but it's been sitting on my workbench for quite a while.
Whew. Glad it's done.

My first beaded cuff is almost done. Thought I'd show off a few work in progress pictures. I think it's going to be beautiful.
I used Lacey Stiff and colored it with a brown sharpie so if by any chance you could see through the beadwork.
I used E6000 to secure the cabachon's.
In the middle is a jasper one that I bought at bead and button a few years ago.
The other cabochons are simply natural stones. I free-formed the design as I stitched the beads onto the Lacey Stiff using silk thread. Yep. ONE AT A TIME.
I will glue suede on the back side of the cuff that is showing in the upper left of the above picture. Then I'll glue on the beaded cuff and stitch the two together with some sort of fancy beadwork.
That's the plan anyway. Hope it works!
