I felt inspired to make a cuff regarding the Three Jewels. I've been wanting to try my hand at fabric cuffs for a while. Last week, while on staycation, I decided to jump in.
The Three Jewels in Buddhism are The Buddha, The Dharma and The Sangha.
The Buddha or the Buddha nature—the ideal or highest spiritual potential that exists within all beings.
The Dharma - the teachings of the Buddha.
The Sangha - the Buddhist community.
I went with muted colors. I love bright colors, in my paintings and home decor. But for dress I like the look of faded laces and earthy neutrals the best. I embellished the cuff with a variety of laces, stamped muslin, pearls of various sizes and shapes and a big wooden button. At first I wondered "should I only add 3 beads?" But I nixed that thought pretty quickly. The jewels are the concepts, not the beads.
