"Starlight" is the name I've given to this latest bead embroidered cuff bracelet that I've created.

The three asymmetrical gemstones in the middle are Aqua Terra Jasper ~ a beautiful stone with gorgeous colorations of aqua swirled with a honey-colored topaz and a warm brown.  These three stones have been bezeled with Toho Japanese glass seed beads, then surrounded with other Aqua Terra Jasper beads in several different sizes and shapes.  Toward the edges are more Toho Japanese seed beads, aqua "sea glass" round beads, Czech crystals, bicone crystals, and decorative varigated glass oval beads.

Below is a closer look at the central gemstones.

Sky Blue NBB foundation by Nicole Campanella is the base for all of my bead embroidery.

Below are three photos showing the finished bead embroidered cuff bracelet.
A delicate picot edge surrounds the whole bracelet.
Inside the cuff, I've used a light blue UltraSuede lining. 
The lovely organic swirls in Aqua Terra Jasper led to the
choice of light aqua blue, brown, and honey-colored beads.
