Beads and camoflage aren't typically combined in the same thought. Unless, of course, you have a mind like mine. I told you inspiration can come from anywhere. I've had this idea to create a camoflage pattern for a beadwoven cuff for awhile, and my recent purchase from Fire Mountain Gems meant that I had enough of the right color beads to execute this funky design. I need some excuse to use all those Delicas, right?!

So here's my newest original pattern... the Camo Cuff:



I just know hunters everywhere are going to want to add these to their wardrobes.

Love it and I'm not a camo type person!

*giggle*

does it have a deer antler button for the clasp? That would make it more manly, for the hunters. (Too many years of watching deer-hunting among Yoopers...)

It's a really cool pattern! And it would be fun to do in all the different camouflage colors (desert browns, etc.)

Hey Marylou,

The cuff is both hilarious and beautiful. (!?!) Good on you! And cuffs are kind of a big thing right now.

Keep up the great work!

Great cuff! Hehe - I was thinking about making a camo cuff the other day....great minds...

You have a really lovely blog - I had already added your blog to a link on mine...

I need to get better about posting to my blog though. I have resolved myself to do this more often.
