Couture Cuff with visiting instructor Nancy Cain

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Cdn $155.00

Course outline: Couture: High Fashion Design, Haute, Attention to Detail, Sophisticated, Elegant, Custom-made. In the style of expensive, fashionable, and hand sewn couture clothing, we are able to create our own high fashion custom accessories with beads, crystals and time invested in attention to detail.

Couture Cuff is a beautifully sophisticated statement piece handcrafted in structural peyote. The structure of the cuffs channel is stitched with an inventive technique that I developed called Pinch-in-the-Ditch. The reward of taking time to handcraft the Couture Cuff is a magnificent display of beads and crystals, so comfortable to wear and beautiful to behold on the wrist.
