The regal shapes have shown their faces in numerous place--from gardens of hedgerows (Versailles Gardens has an astounding collection of such), to shelf supports sporting trinkets in the family home. I decided that this design could not go a moment longer without being adapted to one of my favorite mediums; beads! I was tasked with designing a cuff for a woman who likes bright colors and wears jeans most days. It seemed to be the perfect opportunity to try out a new fretwork design. I created Versailles Fretwork Peyote Cuff for her (It is to be a Christmas present purchased for her by her younger brother), so I will have to wait until December 26th to hear about its reception, but I can only hope it will be grand!
I will be beading up a dichromatic version of this cuff, but for now I jsut had too many blues to not try to use more than one :). Thanks for looking!
