I ended up making two cuffs from an entirely different piece of fabric than the one pictured in my previous post. I think that fabric will eventually become another cuff but I went back to using one of my most favourite backgrounds - silk paper. The theme chosen by Ali and myself for these pieces was Byzantium. I hope I have captured something of the richness I associate with Byzantium. The top and middle photos are of the finished cuffs and the third picture is the work in progress.

Wow, gorgeous! They look so rich and textured. I especially like the one with purple in it.

They really are very jewel like in colours, and the textures are wonderful!

The stitching adds real power to the overall effect!

I love these!!!! I've been playing around with cuffs and this just inspires me more. I am curious what fabric(?) is on the top layer of the third (bottom) photo.

I've used silk paper so I wondered if the top layer is some sort of thin protectant?

They're beautiful!
