Beading from the stash

I'm all fired up about a lampwork beading class I'll be taking so I had to get out my beads and play. Flipping through some old BeadWork magazines I found this for inspiration:

I found some hematite, bone and wood beads from old pieces in my stash and reworked them with some of my seed beads. Here's what I came up with:

I used square stitch at the ends and made the individual strands uneven lengths to add movement to the cuff.

So much fun to be beading again!

  1. That looks amazing Jen. Maybe now that my wrist is a normal size, I can get something to help cover up my medic alert bracelet - we need to chat on the step soon I'm thinking.
