Here is my latest bead embroidery creation. This bracelet is 7" long and 1.5 " wide. The middle piece is a giant Tiger's Eye cabochon surrounded by Toho seed beads.  The curved parts became a bit wonky, but Im still proud of it. Smiley  hope you like it too !

This is so pretty! What are you using as an embroidery base for the beads?

For this piece I used a very thick felt and then a faux suede type fabric beneath so it is soft on the skin.  For my other pieces, I used the faux suede as a base and then used more faux seude beneath.  I am really torn on which I prefer but the felt eliminated the way my beading kept buckling and overlapping.  But my sisters voted that they like the thinness of the fabric ones, so... I am not sure which I prefer.  Smiley  the felt is much easier to work with.

You should be proud of it, it's ridiculously beautiful! If it was lined with poisoned spikes that made everything taste like yuk forever I'd still wear it.
