Mayan Cuff Bracelet and Humble Beads

The Mayan Cuff Bracelet is a bead embroidery class by Bev Herman of No Easy Beads, which was recently taught on the 2007 Bead cruise. Now I know that you are asking "Why on Earth did Liz need a bead embroidery class?" Well, I'll tell you. I don't know. But Bev was teaching and I liked the project and I had a great time. Bev is a good friend and a good teacher - I am pleased with my results. I now have the beadwork attached to the leather backing, and most of the picot stitching around the side is finished.

These are Humblebeads that I purchased from Heather Powers at Humble Beads. I did the wirework for the pendant and charm last night and received multiple compliments on them today. Heather - I might need to get some of your business cards to hand out in Michigan, you might have a new audience.

Liz thanks so much for the kind words about the Mayan Treasure bracelet class. Your bead embroidery is wonderful. I love how your cuff is turning out. I got two humblebeads also. I am going to make a netted bracelet with them. Heather makes a Momma proud.

Hi Liz,
It was so fun hanging out with you and Al. Love your cuff bracelet. Hey, your humblebead set would qualify for the art bead scene contest!
