More Beadwork


I have completed three more beaded zipper cuffs! Two will be for sale on my Etsy site SOON and the third, the bottom one in the above picture, is on it's way to Tanzania for my neice, Kate's 13th Birthday!! Happy Birthday Kate, a bit late but worth the wait, I hope!!!!
The Turquoise/Green cuff has been beaded for a long time but now the lining has been completed. The Orange and Pink cuff was finished just recently and the cuff for Kate was completed today and in record time!!

I love the way the cuffs look all stacked together! But then I do LOVE COLOR!!!!!


Here is a shot of Kate's cuff beofre I stitched it to the cuff. This is the best way to photograph all of the beadwork.


Once on the cuff, here is one end,


and here is the other end. The two blue donut beads are made in Africa from recycled bottles. kate and her Dad brought those beads to me last year! I also used quite a few pearls on this cuff. The green disk bead with the blue swirls is a bead that I made form polymer clay. When Kate vivisted this year and I showed her my Ocean Cuff, she could hardly put it down! I think that she will be quite pleased!!



Here is the middle section.

If you want to see even more detail you can left click on each shot for a close up view!!

I will announce the posting of the Pink/Orange Cuff and the Turquoise /Green cuff, to my Etsy Store ,in about a week. I will be away from my computer for about a week and will attend to business as soon as I return!!!

Gosh..these are so very gorgeous. Makes me wish I did bead work( I'd try to do beading like this onto a quilt!) or wore jewelry). I imagine they will sell very quickly. Beautiful work.

I love your cuffs! Beautiful work. I am so glad that I have inspired you to draw! I love children's art...Maurice Sendak especially. Have you seen the big book about him and his art? It's wonderful! Have a great trip to NC...

I always look forward to your posts. There is always lots to see or hear about. I'm sure the gifted cuff will be a hit and equally as sure the other will sell quickly.

These are fantastic, elizabeth! You always "wow" me with your art!

Robin said...

OMG, Elizabeth!!! You have sooooooooo taken to beading!!! These cuffs are... I was going to say "awesome" but that's a trite and inadequate word for them. Kate will be in heaven. I'm glad you included the picture of it before attaching to the cuff, as you're right, it's the best way to see the beading. This is thrilling to see!

Judy said...

You know, if Kate doesn't like that cuff, I'll be more than happy to take it off of her hands! I'll even pay the shipping from Africa! LOL Seriously though, She is going to love it and keep it with her always, of that you can be sure!
We've got to get a class going here in the southland! I don't think I can let this one get by me!!!
