I started this cuff at a class right after my Alaska cruise. I wanted a nautical piece, I loved my cruise to Alaska. I am so ready to go on another one! But in the meantime I can wear this cuff and know the sea is calling me and it will be only a matter of time and money before I sail agian!
I had bought the mermaid focal bead about 1 or 2 years ago at a bead show, knowing one day she would come in handy, being the full pisces that I am, mermaids beckon to me and I tend to collect them, but only in little tiny versions, yes, I am very strange.
So when the http://www.beadmetaler.blogspot.com/ offered the beaded cuff class, I pulled the bead out and started my cuff! You have to start with a nice big focal piece. It has been a long slow journey, August to December, and with the help of all my friends, the cuff is complete. What a beautiful piece of work, I am so proud of myself for finishing! Thank you to all my friends who helped me along the way!
Upon the Sea, She will Forever Be!
