I posted this over in the embroidery forum as well, but thought the jewelry folks would appreciate this as well...

I have been doing embroidery off and on for about 20 years now and have never ever been able to get the hang of French Knots. A few weeks ago, I finally kicked myself in the keester and went in search of of some good picture tutorials on French Knots and voila! I got it down FINALLY!

Here is the tutorial I used - Purl Bee

The entire cuff is hand sewn - I did all the embroidery, and the backing by hand. I used upholstery fabric for the embroidery side and brown silk for the inside.

the whole cuff:

Holy Cow, you have the patience of a saint.  I occasionally have to do French Knots in cross stitch.  I loathe them!  I can only say their name through clenched teeth!!  Wink
