Work in Progress: Strange Cuff

My bead tray looks a little crowded this week as I juggle one ongoing project and get ready to put the finishing touches on my next geek-inspired piece. The swatch of culled-bead RAW is coming along very nicely, although I’m a little worried about the curve that it seems to be developing. It probably won’t matter much, considering what I plan to create with it once all of the rows are complete, but still. It’s hard to shake the desire for a perfectly proportioned piece of beadwork.

Wavy Beadwork in Progress


The new cuff I’m working on is also a little unusual. The combination of Czech and Japanese seed beads is giving it a nice wave. This design is a bit of a variation on the Earth Mother Cuff from Ancient Worlds Modern Beads. It will probably use up all of my garnet Picasso fringe beads, and a good portion of the coconut chips that I’ve been wanting to use for ages.

What are you making right now?
