The Wide “Tide Pool” Cuff…

is finally finished.  About one-half inch wider than the original cuff (shown at the top left in the photo below), it has two bronze metal clay buttons instead of one and is embellished with six additional bronze metal clay seashells.  I love the colors of the seed beads used in this version…coral, fuchsia, bronze, gold, cream, and metallic green.  Fresh water pearls of various sizes in coordinating colors nestle inside peyote stitched “barnacles” and are also interspersed on the exterior.  I’ve worn the cuff all day and it is a weighty and extremely comfortable piece.  Directions and kits for both versions of the “Tide Pool” cuff are now available on the Jewelry Kits page of my website.
