My December 10 – 16, 2012 – { in a nutshell }

What I’m very much into these days


Making handmade cabochons & tiny sculptures

Angelica Brigade handmade cabochon AngelicaBrigade handmade tiny sculptures

I went nuts and made approximately 225 of these in various color combinations

They are extremely lightweight and made out of the most unusual materials

I will write more about this next week


Little dresses with large, bold, and unusual motifs

Especially: Making beaded cuffs & and statement necklaces.

I love this beaded cuff, but … at this moment, this piece is not perfect enough. Not yet.

There are a few technical aspects I need to improve before I can list it in my Etsy shop.

May be in a  few weeks?

  1. The cuff looks great to me. But, I totally get where you’re coming from.

    • I’m a bit OCD about it, LOL!!!

      I usually back stitch & then couch stitch each bead so they won’t shift even if the cuff is curved.

      But, since this cuff isn’t fully beaded . . . and because the fabric I used isn’t strong enough . . . the unbeaded parts of the fabric do not lie completely flat because the heavier (beaded parts) of the cuff pull the fabric & create ripply look.

      It makes the cuff looks vintage, though . . . But – to some people – the piece might look rather defective.
