#BC-SAK | Sakina Beaded Cuff (Bollybeads Collection)

"Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 2007 film 'Saawariya' ('Beloved') is the story of Ranbir Raj, who is in love with the sad and mysterious Sakina," explains Matthews. "The film is a cinematic vision in blue and teal, and this cuff is inspired by one of Sakina's saris." The designer is a huge fan of Hindi cinema ("Bollywood"); she draws inspiration for the colours and motifs of her knitted beaded cuffs from the movies she loves. This is a wonderful place to begin beaded knitting. The design is simple and lovely, appropriate anywhere, and the pattern is very clear and easy to read.
