Pretty much! It is quite a quick thing to learn,  - there are some videos on YouTube, and a few really good books if you fancy having a go. Smiley

I've done some cuffs with bead embroidery - nothing as stunning as this though - using ultrasuade and a cuff blank.  It always takes longer than you think it will, a loads more beads than you thought it would.  But, I prefer it to weaving.  I love the look of bead weaving, but just don't have the aptitude or patience.

I would love a collar like this - but I never seem to have the opportunity to wear such a stunning piece. Cry

You've got me thinking now - I have been trying to think of a piece of jewellery for my elder daughter for christmas - perhaps a pearl encrusted cuff will be just the job! Grin
