Giveaway Fabric Cuff is finally finished

Poor Doni, honestly, she is still waiting for the fabric cuff, which she won in my giveaway a little while ago. Long while ago, actually. But with all the health issues etc which had cropped up in the last few weeks, my muse had decided to abandon me, and has only just returned. The last couple of days have been a flurry of creativity, which I am really pleased about, and Doni's cuff is one of the things I have managed to finish. IF YOU ARE READING THIS, DONI, AND DON'T WANT TO SPOIL THE SURPRISE, DON'T GO ANY FURTHER!

So, not for Doni, but for the rest of you, here are the pics I took of the cuff I custom made for her. She had asked for creams and pinks, and lace of course, and I hope I got it right. I have also included a religious medal, because I am sure religion is important to her. I have used Swarovski crystals, mother-of-pearl pearls, beads, a big fat pink freshwater pearl, vintage French and English lace, velvet ribbon, all on 100 year old hand loomed French linen, French brocade and another snippet of French fabric, and of course some lace motifs-












My wrists are too skinny for this cuff, but it gives you an idea of what it will look like when worn -

Starting my packing now for next week's trip back to France. Thank you so much for stopping by, a big warm welcome to my lovely new followers, and a hug and a toodlepip to all of you ;-) xxx
