Decayed Elegance Cuff Bracelet

This is the cuff bracelet I've been working on. I finished it up last weekend. It has lots of layers of vintage and antique fabrics, torn and washed strips of new fabrics, as well as hand stamped fabric. All layers are hand stitched, tattered pearls and a clasp from an old pearl necklace are stitched on as well. The final touches are the antique rhinestone beads cut from a 1920's flapper dress, all hand stitched into the design. 
(Yes I know, hairy arm. What can I say, I'm Greek!)

A word on shipping:
I've been a very bad girl, I'm really far behind on my shipping, BUT, this weekend I made sure all my packages were addressed properly and all will be mailed today at lunch.

Hope you all have a great week!
