This cuff bracelet was inspired by my love of turn of the century period piece movies.
I attached organza ribbon, in a pleated fashion, to buckram and began embroidering away. I used hex beads, 4mm pearls, size 11 seed beads and pressed glass leaves. I attached it all to a bracelet blank and backed it with royal purple ultrasuede.
I imagine this cuff on the wrist of a virtuous young woman, like Elizabeth Bennett as she is elegantly dressed for the ball at which she is, perchance, introduced to Mr. Darcy.

"Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers, in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity." I Timothy 4:12
