Bead Table Wednesdays unexpected turn

Not even I can predict what will end up on my bead table.  If you would have asked me Monday (and I think someone did!) I would have said Dragonflies....BUT - because of the dragonflies, and the search for the perfect beads to complete more, I came across these 3 partially surrounded coral cabs that were started probably about 6 months ago.  They were each separate - not attached to each other, and far from a thought for a completed piece.  I think I can thank Sherry Seraphini for that.  I purchased her new book on Monday - Sensational Bead Embroidery - which is full of wonderful cab work and awe inspiring projects.  So it must have inspired me.  The perfect project popped into my head the minute I laid hands on them, especially after combining them with Amethyst.  It will be a cuff bracelet - the name is "Dawn".

Peaceful Bead Table Wednesday, everyone!

Thanks, Courtney. It's grown since the photo - starting on the second side, and still debating on snaps or buttons for the closure.
