It’s finished!

elaborate
adjective |iˈlab(ə)rit|
involving many carefully arranged parts or details; detailed and complicated in design and planning.

This is definitely the most elaborate piece I have ever made!   It makes me think of a cuff that a Persian Princess might have worn in a tale from “The Arabian Nights”.  Or perhaps, a mermaid, given the abundance of pearls and sea-themed embellishments that adorn it.   I’m very pleased with it and can’t wait to start a second cuff – I have another “Cosmic Cabochon” ready to go.  Now for the fun of selecting the embellishments and beads to go with it and then merrily stitching away!

  1. WOW! Amazing. I hope I have a chance to see it in person. Enjoy your respite.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous!

  3. This is totally gorgeous and absolutely stunning Barbara! Fantastic job 🙂

  4. Thank you! I’m very pleased with it and am ready to start another. The next cuff will have bronze metal clay stars and the Cosmic Cab contains a minuscule puzzle piece…should be a lot of fun!

  5. Barbara….what can I say! I am speechless. I love it. It is gorgeous. I know that it is freeform, but did you have a design in mind when you started? Did you know that you were going to use the ruby/garnet and green colors? This just blows me away…I think that I like it so much becasue it is not “gridlike” …love all of the curvy edges. May I ask how long it is, and did you make it to fit yourself or a standard length. Is there a specific reason you chose to use a clasp instead of a cuff insert? (I have only used an insert myself, being so experienced!!) CLose up, please!!

  6. It really is gorgeous, and looks like a lot of fun to make. It was fun to see in the beginning stages and now this marvelous piece. Congrats!

  7. You are a natural bead embroiderer.

  8. Gorgeous! You are very talented!!
