Fiber Cuff - Mixed Media

Project Description

Who is this project for? Unisex What are you most proud of? These are very unique pieces and since they are fabric backed and fasten with hook and loop they are very comfy to wear. I love how each one turns out so very different but still my style. They go over very well in my Etsy shop and at shows i've done. People are drawn to them and have to try them on. I was happily surprised when I took them to my first show at how well they were received. I feared they would be too odd and off beat but it seems that is what attracts people to them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with a simple version. Look into your jewelry collection and see if you have an old favorite piece that is broken or you just no longer wear - give it new life in a cuff. At first you might think the stiff interfacing is too stiff but trust me it works great. Don't use glue you are not sure of on these - the E600 works great. It does have a bit of a smell thou when it's wet. Have fun - create!
