Salsa Cuff

This bead embroidered cuff was lots of fun to do. The mocha colored cabochon was surrounded with peyote stitch and then I just went on "improv", as is my usual style. The result was playful and  someone at one of my shows said the piece reminded her of Native American design, except for the color scheme which is more modern. I used lime greens, pinks, chocolate brown, turquoise blue and some peacock finished 3 cuts.

This cuff is fixed to a metal bracelet blank, unlike most of my cuffs, which are soft.
