Brides Embroidered Cuff


This was such a pleasure to make. I had to experiment a little, which translates into the fact that the first attempt to float the center didn't work out well. But, now I have it under control! Once again I used flowers that don't grow in the desert where I live, but I truly love. I can buy them when they are in season in pots, they don't last long, and I will never have a huge shrub of hydrangea! Nor will I ever have a magnolia tree. Don't ask...why do I live in the desert...well I don't have to have four seasons of clothing. (ok, we won't go there either since I love wearing sweaters...boots...)

This embroidered cuff would make such a lovely memento for a bride on her wedding day. I can imagine the same bride as a mom and giving it to her daughter to wear on her wedding day...something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new... Along with the embroidered flowers are fluorite chips in frosty white on each edge of the cuff encircling the wrist. And, teeny, tiny Swarovski crystals scattered in the hydrangea that give it just that lovely flicker of sparkle!

This is so elegant! I love the crystals in it! Anything that sparkles :) I can see this cuff with a more modern wedding gown, maybe a halter?
