Finally finished!  I bead a bit, ok, a lot slower, during gardening season.  The plant co-op keeps me pretty busy.  And no matter how hard I try, it keeps my fingers rough and my finger nails dirty - lol.
I started this cuff a couple of months back, but the last week or so have made a push to finish it.
I guess because I have ordered so many beads recently, I figured I had better get busy!
Turquoise cabs and various sized seed beads make it quite dimensional.

Bead Shopping

Bead shopping leads to more and more beads.  I've been admiring the pieces made with Czech glass buttons, so I had to order some.  I picked these two first.  Both have green and amethyst coloring with accents of gold.  Then, of course, I had to buy accent colors to work with, in various shades, shapes and sizes.   I plan a cuff bracelet done in embroidery and maybe a necklace with the other.

Boy, I can't believe how long it's been since I blogged!   But I still beading and chatting up a storm on Facebook.
