BFAC Preview

I just couldn't stand not to share this with someone. This cuff is from the current BFAC kit. I fell in love with the colors immediately and knew right away what I wanted to do with it. These pictures are not the ones which will accompany my entry this year, but just some I took at home today.
This is the first time I have made a cuff on a metal blank. I did it specifically so it would fit more wrists. I prefer to make what I call soft cuffs that wrap easily around the wrist, but they must be made to fit a specific size wrist. The blank makes it more versatile. I am also going to make a matching pendant necklace to wear with it. It may be that it will be auctioned off separately. I'm not sure yet. In any
case, it was a pure pleasure to work with these colors. While I immediately thought of black, this kit lends itself to many different color combinations. I can't wait to see what everyone else does with it.

The bottom picture is a close up of the sides toward the back of the cuff.


Be sure to check out our current auctions on Beading for a Cure. You can reach them by going to www.beadingforacure.org and clicking on the auction button. You can also see the Galleries for years past. Check it out. I know you will enjoy the variety of beaded objects done by some wonderful bead artists.

Beautiful cuff! That would make a gorgeous set with a pendant and maybe a set of earrings?

I'm still trying to decide what I want to do with my BFAC kit, have a couple of ideas just haven't had time to sit down and really see what it is calling me to make :)
