Back on July 27th, Sarah of Saturday Sequins blog put out the call to those that wanted to participate in her Sequintastic September challenge, here are the rules:
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to...
Easy so I signed up and then I thought, what in the world was I going to make. Then I remembered a bead embroidery cuff that I had started, perfect I could fill in the spaces with sequins.
I had this jasper stone bead that I bezeled and around it I sewed Rose Quartz chips. I used Czech glass beads for the leaves and the other little flowers are made from pink fresh water pearls and black Czech glass roundels I sewed on the silver plated butterflies and that is as far as I got when I could not decide how I wanted to fill it in. I was going to do a checker board back ground with pink and gray seed beads, but I did not like how that was looking so I ripped that out. The sequins turned out to be the best solution.
Now to find the right color sequins for my cuff. Off to Joann's I go, because in my town there is not a whole lot of places to find sequins. I was lucky because they had one pack of pale pink sequins left and I also chose a silver AB square sequins too.
Here is the result of adding all of the sequins to the background of this cuff.
I used the silver AB square sequins behind the round pink sequins to give a little extra bling factor.
I used silver lined clear seed beads size 8 for the edging and a five hole slide clasp
I am very pleased with how this piece turned out.
