24kt Gold & Opal Cuff
Woven on the thick warps, in ways to allow each style of bead to 'inter lock', creating a mesh of BLING! This is truly "Weaving Along The Warps".
The way each bead fit, into another, by the selections I made, allowed for a wonderful body, to this cuff. Included are 24kt overlay gold glass beads, permanent gold glass beads, Glacier Opal Crystals and highlighted with Pacific Opals.
The width was able to handle a double clasp attachment, which I applied a Gilt to patina a matching color. The relief, on the clasp surface, also lent itself to match the cuff design.
A Field of Erin's Poppies!
I think this may actually be my favorite, of all I ever made! A great color of red, off white and turquoise.
The turquoise border was added, offering a totally different color than what is originally offered, in the cuff.
I love these three colors together.
A wide filigree box clasp, finishes this trio of colors.
I love Hummingbirds, but they are very hard to catch on film.
Thus is the same, with my loom pattern.
Their wings are in constant movement. This is something I truly wanted to portray, in my pattern. As a photography major, back in the day, the 'shutter speed' was set hoping to stop motion, like the wings of a Hummingbird. I've laughed, with family, that I better double check the settings, in my pattern program.
The netting was attached 'on top', of the bead woven cuff base. All connecting points are secured so the netting does not lift. I also added a green patina to the finish of the clasp.
Bead loom woven with 11/0 Delicas and a relief of Silver Scrolling of 11/0 Permanent Silver metallic Japanese beads. You can see the relief, of the mixed size beads, at the curve, towards the back edge, of the cuff. Super Duos create a decorative fringe.
