Tiger Eye Cuff

Since our 7th grade field trip to NYC where we visited the Museum of Natural History, tiger eye has been one of my favorite gemstone. My souvenir from the museum was a box with a dozen or so different gemstones.
This bead cuff features a tiger eye focal, chips and rice beads.
Miyuki seed bead colors include
Swarovski Smokey Topaz 2.5 mm
Dark Bronze Fire Polished round beads
I stitched on lightweight suede leather, but it is tough on the fingers pushing a needle through it.
When we go to town next, I'll check for the stiff felt at Michaels.
