Work in Progress: Colorful Cuff

I’m just settling in after a mini vacation this week, and putting the final touches on the new primary colors cuff. The palette is so fun and summery, and with a traditional bead and loop closure, it’s feeling very much like a grown-up summer camp project. I'm working a lot more this summer than I'm used to, so any little splash of sunshine is welcome!

Summer Cuff in Progress

Days seem to be zipping by much faster than I’d like, and I’ve decided to postpone opening a new jewelry shop. I just don’t have time to start from scratch, but if I don’t do something all of my designs will be sitting in a box collecting metaphorical dust. I’m going to fall back on my existing shops for now, and perhaps migrate at a later date.

What are you making right now?

  1. I love primary colors jewelry and this cuff looks very interesting. What type of stitch are you using. I find you tutorials to be most helpful and I love your site.

    1. This is a special combination of square stitch and stringing. It's fiddly work, but totally worth it when the project is finished.
