Jennifer (the lady that ordered the cuff) only said that she liked the colors in my mom's cuff and that she wanted gold beads in it. I think I have filled her requests with this one. My husband is not too interested in my beading, but even he said this one was really good. That made me feel spectacular!
I wish you could see it in person. My picot edging was really nice and even too, although you can't really tell in the pics. Rather than looking at the top edge, because I think the front side and back side overlap and make the edging in the pic look messy, look at the picot on the bottom edge. It's my best yet.
I for sure undersold myself on this one. I gave her a price, but after looking on Etsy and stuff later, I could have at least doubled what I asked. But it was my first sale, and I was just happy about it. I can always go up a little in the future.
AND it was confirmed yesterday that I am going to teach my very first class! It will be on improvisational bead embroidery. I specifically asked for the class to be small...not more than 5 people...because I have a lot of problems with nerves and anxiety. I don't want to get overwhelmed my first go around. It wasn't that long ago that I was agoraphobic and wouldn't even step out, let alone be in front of people. I wrote up my handouts last night and either today or tomorrow I will be going to the bead shop to pick out beads for the kits. We haven't set a date yet, but it will be in the next couple weeks. I'll take my camera and see if anyone minds if I take their picture to write about it and post on my blog after it happens.
