I think so anyways!  I wish I had more pics of this but my camera is not playing nice today.  You pretty much get the idea though.  It's a super simple cuff that I glittered in ombre style.  It's a full piece of Shrink Dink with 3-4 layers of glitter and a spray for shine.  This was an experiment but I like the results.  You see the back is black stretch cord for easy access and comfort. It's not shiny at all but the spray worked out PERFECT to seal the glitter and made it much more durable.

Nice, at first I thought that was a beadwoven piece with graduated seed beads or delicas, because I had been working with graduated colours like that too.  Did not realise until I opened up your post that it was glitter.

Thank you!  I was really very pleased with how it turned out.  As I said before it was an experiment but I think it turned out well.  I need to get some better pics taken of it, which I will do as soon as my batteries are done charging.  (Yep I have an OLD camera!)

BTW...I don't think you can tell but it starts silver and turned totally black.  With the glare on it, it kinda looks like the silver bleeds down the middle of the black but it does not.  I'm sure the better pics will give a better idea.
