I've been knitting a lot of these lately (and getting paid to do so!) so here is the fruit of the last month or so minus the ones I forgot to photograph before I gave them to the person who bought it.  (That would be this lovely cream number with see-thru white beads and a teal ribbon running through it, and a blue cuff with red beads and a cabled center).

Here are the pics, I hope you enjoy.

Unfortunately, the girl who received this (her friend bought it for her as a birthday gift) got into a "bleach fight" the very next day, so the vibrant gold thread is now a patchy yellow-orange.

This next one is my most recent, and it is being sent to Turkey in a few days.  So you might say I'm going international Cheesy

Forgive the crappy quality of this last one, it was taken on a camera phone just as I was giving it to the girl who bought it (she's actually modeling it, not me) because I forgot to take pics earlier.  In reality is a bit more emerald and the beads are a nice warm brown, slightly larger than what I usually use.

I love these! You did a great job.

PS.  WTF is a "bleach fight" and why in the world would one get in said fight?

Thank you so much!

And to spydygrrl: I have no idea what a bleach fight is.  The girl is a little odd, even by my standards, but it made me sad to see it all stretched out of shape and bleached just a few days later.  So much for appreciating a gift her friend bought for her.

Those are wonderful!! I have tried knitting with some beads and it just does not work for me, how do you get those tinies onto the cuff?
