Victorian Inspired Cuff

I had some cameos just sitting around and had a burst of inspiration to make another velvet cuff. I tried my hand at embroidery for the border, set the cameo in peyote stitching, and beaded some St. Petersburg chain for embellishment. Below is the final product.  I won’t give away all my secrets . . . but I started with two lengths of velvet ribbon. Everything is hand stitched. It doesn’t look like much .  .  . but I devoted a lot of time to this piece. I like it.
