Music has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. My Mom always sang to me, in her lovely alto voice, even though the songs weren't the traditional lullabies most children hear (you can read about that here). In my younger days I played violin, cello, and piano, and I sang in the church choir and in a concert choir. I gave up playing instruments a long time ago, but I've been known to belt out a tune every now and then while I'm in the shower or driving down the road (windows up, of course).
After I listed my Piano Man cuff, one of my fellow Etsy BeadWeavers (Carol, of ambrosianbeads and retrothreads, who plays and teaches violin) mentioned in a comment that she'd been trying to create a treble clef or a violin in peyote but hadn't had any luck. Well, being a music lover myself, I had created this stylized treble clef design awhile back but hadn't gotten around to making the cuff. This seemed like the perfect opportunity. Although I could have created this in any color combination (and I pondered creating one for "the blues"), I chose to really show off the treble clef by weaving it in bright luster red against a white background. Whaddya think? Isn't this perfect for a music lover? :-)
The other cuff I just listed is the Pink and Purple Bouquet. You saw the beginnings of it just a couple of days ago, so now you can check out the finished piece. I really love doing these freeform peyote cuffs. It's fun to see them develop as more and more beads are added.
