In that vein, I decided to get a piece of felted scrap out of my basket and make a cuff. This scrap is felted wool with silk chiffon felted on to it. I cut it into somewhat of a "cuff shape" and got to work.
First I stitched in a shisha mirror. Then I couched some sari yarn on the cuff and around the mirror.
I stitched these beads on using the fly stitch.
Then I picked out some beads from my huge bead stash. I used a larger cobalt bead to stitch the edges with a blanket stitch
I had some two toned flat round beads that looked like they were raku. After that I made some dangley beads and called it good.
This is a Velcro closure
