I made this for my coworker for her birthday, she loved it!  I almost didn't give it to her because I liked it so much too!

I just made it up as I went along... tigereye, glass, and coral beads.  Backstitching, french knots and a few feather stitches(?). Fabric scraps, felt and leather strips.  About 6 hours work in total...

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous!  I can see why it was so hard to give it away.  I bet your friend loved it!

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

Too bad this is an old post, purple and mustard is one of my favourite colour combinations! I think this would make an awesome belt, might have to try it out!
