Evolution of a Creation

Pink Percussion Cuff I just finished another cuff bracelet and listed it in my shop. It was interesting to make this one - I started out with the pink fabric I had used previously and wanted to add some gold mesh I had a scrap of. After doing a little bit of stitching and beading, I just wasn't happy with it and set it aside for a few hours.

Pink PP Cuff BraceletLater on I came back and added some orange stitches. I still wasn't thrilled with it - I looked and looked at it and realized there wasn't enough contrast, nothing popped out. So, I picked up the blue thread (I think it has a retro feel to it) and started adding french knots. Over and over again. After a while it started to emerge as a design - clustering on one end... flittering through the mesh and petering out at the other end of the cuff. I'm pretty pleased how this one came out. You can find it at my etsy shop if you're interested.
