Work in Progress: Bugle Cuff

This week I’ve got a crazy work schedule, but I am finding time to squeeze in a little beadwork here and there. It seems as if the momentum I had at the beginning of the year has fizzled out, but the plan to make use of my favorite beads and techniques is still in motion – even if it’s a little slower than I would like. I’m trying not to let too many ideas crowd in and derail my motivation. One bead or project at a time is just the way to do it.

Blue Bugle Cuff in Progress


I’m just finishing up the new bone lariat, and then I decided it was time to make a new bugle cuff. I stocked up on a few favorite colors in Czech bugles a little while ago, specifically to make square stitch bracelets, and I thought it was about time I actually started using them. I’m really looking forward to trying out this satin blue color – I just have to decide on a pattern for the black and beige.

What are you making this week?
