More of that cuff

Just when I think I am done, I see another area I can add to. Sure enough, it works even better. At least I will have great 'guns' when I am done, as it will be heavy enough to muscle up my arms! LOL! Just have to remember to switch wrists, so one arm doesn't get more developed than the other.

I did clip closely to the beading all around, using my flush cutters for wire, as that Pellon 70 is tough stuff, then laid the ultrasuede under it, and put the whole thing on a glass jar side. I was able to outline the ultrasuede with a pen by pushing hard on the beaded piece, so it laid up close, and got the wrinkles out. I think the jar really helped get the shape.

Now, just a few more vines, then some ruby flowers to match his eyes, and I can put the whole thing together!

Glad you do, Judy, but now that it is done, I am so not happy with all the fluffy leaves at the ends. I also don't like the darker beads there, so am thinking "here come those Japanese clippers"...and off go the beads there..I will post a pic of it done, and get some opinions- HONEST only. I don't want the ends to stand out as if they were from a different bracelet alltogether!
