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.
