Another peyote stitch bracelet

This bracelet was a slightly different application of peyote stitch. It is made up a series of peyote shapes, each constructed separately, and then sewn together, a bit like crazy patchwork. Then I added accent beads and a couple of peyote stitch flowers that I had made. It was VERY time consuming, far more so than the freeform peyote, but I really love the effect and I will definitely use this technique again. I used a variety of glass and plastic beads, mostly from Lincraft, but also leftover from another project that I had done (which isn't quite finished and photographed yet) which we very high quality glass beads from Beadalon in the US. Posted by Picasa

Love your beading and I completely admire you for doing it! I've just put some seed beeds onto the inside edge of a bag I'm working on. They're couched over a metallic yarn. It's the first time I've used such little beads and it's totally hair raising! All those little glass things sliding about. When it was over I had them in my lap, insode my shirt and in my hair. Don't ask.
