Jewel Embellished Cuffs

Here's a photo of my lastest cuff designs. Grateful for a sunny day for a bit of picture-taking! Sunny days become a rarity in the Northeast, now that fall is here.
The cuffs are made of  clay and on top of the clay, gems are nestled in painted silk carrier rods, painted with our Rainbow Dyes.

I  recently met a costume designer and seamstress  for the Met. She had wonderful opera stories. These gems came from the opera Carmen.  The cuffs I kept for myself were too large. The cuffs are lined in Ultrasuede, but the ones I kept, are lined with  thick wool blanket pieces, that had been felted. Took up the slack beautifully.  A new addiction!
