Wedding Cuff...Christmas Cuff...or Anything In Between

      I've had some beautiful lemon-green, pearlized beads for awhile but, had no idea what to do with them.  That was until a friend of mine said she was engaged to be married. 
     As I looked at those beads, my mind was transported to wedding nirvana. Although I've been marrried 21 years, it's fun to visit that place every now and again! I am a girl surrounded by two teenage sons, a husband, and a dog. Need I say more? 
     This cuff is the result of my mental wedding musings. It was inspired by lace, tiered wedding cakes (food always inspires me), and the freshness of early spring. All of that may sound "hokey" but it's what I was thinking.

     This cuff was also inspired by a design by Lisa Kan. Her quadrifoil element in the center of the cuff is so versatile. I've used variations of it in other designs.

     Button pearls, Czech Firepolish beads, and Swarovski Crystals add a bit of vintage appeal and sparkle. The color scheme keeps it modern. The magnetic clasps makes this cuff easy to put on and take off making it one of my favs to wear. I've even worn with my bath robe.
     Blessings and happy beading!
