The class I signed up for was a bead embroidered cuff using shibori ribbon. We had several colorways to chose from in the kits and since I was Spring starved by that time in the winter, I chose a very spring like colorway. Here is a picture of the cuff I ended up with.
Each kit had different cabs and beads and general directions. But, Sherry encouraged each of us to lay the ribbon any way we chose and to use the beads and the cabs as we wanted. So we didn't end up with cookie cutter bracelets. I don't know if anyone finished their cuff in class, I don't think so, but I didn't because I always want to take my time and decide where I want to go next in a bead embroidered design. So, that meant I could go home and pull some other beads, favorites of mine to use in bead embroidery. Glass donuts and lentils are two favorites and I tend to use one or the other, sometimes both, in a design. In this cuff I used both! Here are some details of the cuff.
You can see the donuts in the upper right and the lentils on the left.
I also added some matte AB firepolished bead to the mix because the color was perfect with the shibori.
This class was a wonderful experience. Sherry is delightful and is looking forward to coming back to Bead Soup. And, I'll be there because I wouldn't miss one of her classes!
Thank you all for visiting me today. I really appreciate your visits. I'm not a faithful blogger but I enjoy getting to hear from you so much. Have a wonderful day!
