I have gotten word that my dear friend Judy ,of Judy in the Dyes, has received her commissioned Corded Cuff. Now I feel free to post my latest creation. Judy requested a cuff in red. I made the cording using seam allowances from a red cashmere sweater and some special yarns and shining threads and gathered all of the beads with red included, as well as things that spoke of Judy, her interests and passions.
Each piece is completely hand stitched and lined with lovely soft Ultra Suede.
Here you can see the shank button and corded loop closure along with the vintage Czech red glass flower bead and the vintage Lucite lime green flower bead nearby. Judy is an avid gardener and I knew that I had to include lots of floral and leaf elements.
Judy also requested some turquoise to accompany the red. (Easy Easy- that just happens to be one of my current favorite color combinations as well!!) Nest to the Peace symbol above you can see a tiny millifiore face bead and just to the right of that tiny face, is a vintage red a black glass bead (Victorian I think.) there is also a deep blue and gold Victorian glass button just to the lower left of the Peace symbol. I love finding tiny treasures to fit in to these very personal pieces!
