Hurray for Bollywood!

No…that’s not a typo.  Bollywood is the  term popularly used for the Hindi-language film industry – a playful version of Hollywood done Indian style!   Many of these films feature dancers attired in brightly colored clothing accented with beads of dazzling brilliance.  Gold, saffron, garnet, hot pink, purple, and vivid blues and greens – these are the vibrant colors that I associate with Bollywood. I think this bracelet would fit perfectly with those costumes perfectly!  I’ve aptly titled this piece the “Bollywood Bling” Beaded Ruffle Cuff.  It sparkles with a beautiful Swarovski crystal rivoli and tiny crystals that line the cuff’s undulating seed beaded ruffled edges.   More crystals sit atop handmade satin finished flower disks which I’ve made from bronze metal clay and sewn along the center length of the cuff.  This piece just makes me happy!  I’m almost finished editing the pattern for this delightful cuff and I’ll have beading kits ready in a few days.  Imagine this piece  in shades of turquoise or lapis lazuli or emerald.   Yum…I want one in every color!
