I wanted to focus on the Egyptian revivalism part of the Art Deco movement.
I planned a pretty delicate bracelet, but have put the idea off because of the expense of metal beads. So I decided to try a bead embroidered cuff.
I have this huge scarab from my Egyptian expedition and lots of turquoise and red beads! I sketched a few motifs on the stiff stuff as a kind of guide.
I'm a painfully slow bead embroiderer though. Here's how far I've gotten.
