Designer: Marla Salezze
"I used leather—another new-to-me material that I’m loving—to create the foundation for a bead embroidered cuff. To create a more rustic appearance on the Nunn Design brass elements I chose for this bracelet, I used coral red gilder’s paste. I apply the paste with a paper towel and lightly blot the paste until I get the desired look and opacity on the brass findings. After the paste has dried I attach them to the leather foundation with E6000 glue. I backstitched around unakite cabochons and finished the cuff with a picot brick stitch.” – Marla Artist Components: Beads, cuff, leather, stones.
