Weekend Fringed Jewels Project: My Reworked Cuff

I was drawn to the lace-covered cuff bracelet and instantly placed my order. It arrived with the lace partially-unglued. I was disappointed and shared this with the seller, after I re-glued it.

However, the damage was done ... It lost some of its value and became simply a lace-covered cuff. Of course, I didn't give up. I went through several rounds of hand painting to add a story, and some depth, to this piece. It now is what I envisioned when I started with the paint ... It reminds me of an unearthed Grecian cuff.
