This bead embroidered cuff bracelet includes a central jasper cabochon, pearls, dichroic glass (containing ultra-thin layers of silver), crystals, agate gemstones, and glass seed and bugle beads with a black UltraSuede lining.
Above is what the bracelet looked like after the beads were embroidered onto the foundation, and before it was attached to the inner brass cuff, which gives it a form-fit around the wrist.
All of the beads and stones are sewn onto the foundation one at a time (or two at a time if very small), and then back-stitched twice to secure the beads to the foundation and to align them correctly.
