One of my favorite parts of designing and stitching a needlepoint cuff comes at the very end. After it's stitched and constructed comes the last part, the embellishing. I have a large, (well, very large) stash of beads, pearls, gems, and I study them carefully to determine what would be an excellent last touch for my cuff. It's a delicate balance, it should be rich, bring another layer of beauty, but not over do it! It should be a promotional tool, one that promotes the cuff to it's full potential.
I've put together a lovely 3 page instruction manual on different ways to embellish a cuff. Along with the instructions, each package gets a compilation of seven different elements that can be used to embellish. The package has enough to embellish 2-3 cuffs, the combinations are many. I've listed them on our Etsy shop, ($19). Take a look --
