Bronze metal clay and sparkly seed beads…

this is a sneak peak of the materials for the next project I have in mind!  It will be a cuff – I am definitely enamoured with bracelets!   The clasp and embellishments are bronze metal clay and I’ve chosen vivid colors in Toho 11/0 seed beads to stitch the project.  It will be a wide cuff and a bold design and I plan to work it in square stitch.  It will be interesting to see the finished product and it may be exactly what I have in mind or, as often happens, new ideas pop into my head as I stitch and the design morphs into something totally different.  This is why I often complete two or more projects before settling on the final design that will become a beading kit and designer pattern.  It’s a process I liken to falling down a rabbit hole and deciding which path to take, then experiencing an adventure that sweeps me up in a wave of creativity!
