Bead Embroidery Cuff Bracelet

In an attempt to experiment a bit more as an artist, I decided to try to make one of the more interesting designs, a bead embroidery cuff.
I've avoided making one as I never really felt like I would have anywhere to wear it.

BUT, should that stop you from trying something new? Naaaaaa =)

Right side

I used some stiff felt to make the base and a brass blank to give it support. The back is lined with a nice light gray ultrasuede. It is a rather weighty cuff, but it does get a lot of notice.
