A truly beautiful, buttery antique (1920's/30's) wide spanish velvet ribbon arrived in the mail from a wonderful etsy seller of vintage ribbon..I eagerly opened the package..and never again put the velvet down.. until this cuff was complete..an impossible rush of delight.. to work with..dreamy to gaze upon..heaven to the touch.

In my frenzy of creating, some long forgotten childhood memory floated back to me...

Little girls sitting in a sun-drenched field. Do you remember?..
.' Do you like butter?'.. wild buttercup flower held under a tiny wrist..if the reflection of the flowers glowed yellow on your skin ..why..yes you did!
My wrist always glowed yellow..yummy.. butter.

This hand sewn and embroidered art cuff has hand couched pearl white silk cording twisting among tiny vintage enameled yellow 'buttercups' strewn together with pale green jade beads, creamy vintage japanese rose cabechons and a delicate vintage brass chain with sapphire blue crystals.
A re-purposed embroidered indian cotton cuff from a softly torn blouse lines the velvet ..the ruffled trim peeking out at the lower edge. Finished and trimmed with sage green silk cord and bleached supple ivory deerskin lace.
Seven soft matte white porcelain-like vintage lucite leaves and white turquoise drops clink and dance together adding a bit of gypsy lure to this one of a kind creation.

If you have a passion, as I, for the old, vintage textiles, the gorgeous velvet in this cuff will enchant and delight. Be sure to check out the wonderful shop from where this velvet came.. http://www.etsy.com/shop/FiniRibbon

Approx.7.5" (19cm) by 3" (8cm) with 2 snaps closing on the side.. fits 5.5" to 7"(14cm to 18 cm) wrist sizes..I can move the snaps to accommodate larger sizes.

Comes with its own MiddleEarths 'precious' pouch
