I have been meaning to make a second bead-embroidered cuff since I finished my first one (Ancient Cuff) a while ago... and here it is!!!!
I guess I tend to be a bit of a control-freak when it comes to my designs.... but here I set out to free myself from the constraints of following rigid specific ideas to really allowing myself to go wild and almost do the opposite of what I would have usually done... and that is how my Purple Balagan came about. Balagan is a word used around here to describe a bit of a mess/confusion/chaos... but not in a derogative way... or at least I don't understand it in a negative manner :-) it's actually one of my favourites words... it's a fun word.... therefore befitting my cuff :-)
How much fun was that!!!! so much fun!!! I almost felt as though I was painting rather than beading... does that make any sense?... I absolutely LOVED making this piece and can't wait to make another cuff as soon as I finished working on my current bead-embroidered necklace... stay tuned! :-)
