Wedding Week already!

I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by. There has been a lot happening, not least on the family side of things, with my son's wedding happening next Friday August 15. Today is Dana's Hens' party and I am sitting waiting for the others to arrive so that we can set off for the winery where we are having lunch, and hoping that the rain stops soon.
We are all thankful for the rain, as we keep getting told what a dreadful drought we are in..... But please could we have a bit less of it at the end of this week? Today the rain has been bucketing down with a forecast of 12 Deg C and possible snow in the mountains, so it is a bit chilly here.

Back to beading and I have made a set of goodies to wear to the wedding which I thought you might like to take a look at.

There is a cuff, ring and pendant all in Right Angle Weave, with bicone bead embellishment. The fabric for my outfit is purple/mauve/silver and I wanted to try and keep the jewellery complementary rather than taking over. Hope I have succeeded.
The cuff is based on my Elegant Bracelet Instructions (just another couple of repeats of the main pattern). The clasp is something I dreamed up and works really well with the cuff.
Don't forget to vote in the EBW Challenge! Voting started yesterday. See previous post for the website link. There is another great treasury west as well http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list_west.php?room_id=21105. The EBW team members work really hard on their Challenge pieces so I hope you enjoy them.
