Fiber Art Cuff Bracelets
I had such fun making the series of necklaces featuring both tapestry embroidery and bead embroidery on linen that I made two cuffs in the same style. One is a wider cuff with a really eyecatching focal stone, and the other is a little more subtle. I have really been enjoying working in this muted color palette, but I will be returning to some more brightly colored work in the near future!
One element I introduced to the larger cuff was the appliqued leather leaves with gold painted accents which really add something unique to this piece. I really like leather accessories and plan to introduce more such elements into my future work.
