Inspired by a Bee Cuff
Made as part of a collection for the Portland Bead Society annual challenge.
The blue represents the sky the bee flies under. The lines are from the delicate bee wings.
Bead embroidery over a copper metal cuff, using Japanese and Czech glass seed beads, polymer clay cabochon, and crystals.
Can be sized for most wrists.

Don’t Let Them Get Away
I don’t think it’s fair for some girls to have plenty of pretty things, and other girls nothing at all.Louisa May Alcott
You know I’m old in some ways –
in others – well, I’m just a little girl.
I like sunshine and pretty things
and cheerfulness – and I dread
responsibility. F Scott Fitzgerald
