Between resin pours, I’m excited to work on bead embroidery projects. My creative penchant causes me to look everywhere (literally)for inspiration. Translate: “This is a great reason to visit bead shops!”
During a Spring trip to Salida, Colorado, I fell in love with a tiny druzzy bead I couldn’t live without at a local beadstore called Beadsong. If you bead, you know understand. I owned the perfect bronzy-olivine beads with which to surround it. They were travelling with me. I could hardly wait to start the cabochon.
No question. A bead embroidery cuff was brewing. (Earlier this year I explored cameo cuffs.)
This darling little druzzy, I reasoned, would make an awesome class project. (Translation: I bought all of them!) I’d explored class options with Jean Post at Elinor’s Art ‘N Beads.
“Druzzy Bead Embroidery Cuff Class” is scheduled for 1pm – 4pm Sunday August 16, 2015 at Elinor’s Art and Beads. The $75 kit provides your cuff, filigree, druzzie, brocade braid and ultra suede. Learn more or sign up.
This class is for you if:
- The idea of creating with filigree intrigues you.
- You’re looking for a bead embroidery project that’s different, classic and elegant.
- You’re already a bead embroidery enthusiast (isn’t everyone) and you’d like to adapt this project.
- You’re looking for shortcuts to what works and what doesn’t in bead embroidery cuffs.
Druzzy Drama in the cuff will reveal secrets to bead embroidery cuff bracelets of all sizes and persuasions.
Stop into Elinor’s Art and Beads, 3301 Menaul NE next to World Market, to view the class sample. Pick your favorite color palette and prepare to enjoy an incredibly fun class.
Me? I can hardly wait. In fact, I’m working on some additional adaptations for your consideration.
How about the scarab?
Maybe you’d rather see gemstones such as garnets.
Or, consider these tiny cameo cuffs.
The point is, cuff drama lets you express yourself in new ways. Join me to explore the possibilities in my druzzy bead embroidery cuff class. I promise, we’ll have a great time in the process of creating our bead embroidery cuffs.
