Marie Antoinette - Pink Leather Cuff - EBWC
This beautiful cuff was created for the EtsyBeadWeavers’ February Challenge “Royalty throughout Time”. I was inspired by the opulence and colours of Marie Antoinette’s lavish gowns and by the richness of the fabrics used during that period of the reign of Louis XVI.
This pretty cuff was bead embroidered around a beautiful pear-shaped vintage cabochon and is bead-embroidered using silver, crystal and pink Japanese seed beads embellished with pink Swarovski crystals and off-white Swarovski pearls. This centrepiece is attached to a lovely light pink genuine leather-covered cuff which is trimmed and embellished with the silver Japanese seed beads. The inside of the cuff is lined with lilac/mauve Ultrasuede.
The bracelet fits all sizes and is c. 2” (c. 5 cm) wide. The bead-embroidered centrepiece measures 2” (c. 5 cm) by 1 ¾” (c. 4.5 cm).
