One Ends, Another Begins

Desert Study No. 2 is now complete. I backed it with cream colored Ultrasuede and gave it a bright copper slide closure.

That being done, Asa (my partner-turned-husband) asked me to make a cuff for him. He particularly liked some gorgeous ceramic beads I found at Mama's Minerals last month. He's developed a deep admiration for the look and feel of all things steampunk so my problem was this: How to adapt the steampunk aesthetic to bead embroidery. Here's what I've come up with so far:

AeroAsa Stage 1

AeroAsa Stage 2

I'm not sure where this is going just yet, but I like it.

Ooo - BTW, today's guest post over at the Colour Lover's Blog is so good, I'm printing it out and pasting it in my workbook. Great advice.


  1. So far so good. Is that a magnetic snap type closure?

  2. @ Jade Dog - yes it is - I bought a package of them to repair Asa's mapcase and decided this was the perfect closure.

  3. Awesome goodies, Morwyn!

  4. Love your finished Desert cuff! The colours and lines are indeed evocative of a desert scene :) The new cuff for your husband is looking fantastic...what a nice hubby to request a cuff from you, very cool! :)

  5. @ KV & Belinda - Thanks!
