I've finally finished the second version of my Lily Cuff which has taken a lot longer than anticipated due to the poor light here in the UK at this time of year. I prefer to bead by daylight (I do have some daylight simulation bulbs but they are just not the same) and so some days there have only been 4 or 5 hours when the natural light was bright enough to bead by. Still, it is finished now and I am quite pleased with the result. This cuff is worked entirely in one colour of seed beads and reminds me of a lily in a moonlight garden - hence the name!
I'm not going to write much this week, I thought I would let the pictures do the talking, but I wanted to let you know that this will be the last blog post from me for this year. I intend to try out some more ideas over the holiday period, so I hope to have pictures of new work to share with you early in the New Year. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you all have a great holiday and I wish you health and happiness for the New Year. I look forward to catching up with you all in 2010!
