Well, I woke up this morning, with the feeling that I needed to blog. The habit is forming!
Today I will show you something I just made last week. It was one of those things that I just had to do.
I am a self taught beader, and the first stitch I taught myself was the peyote stitch, and I always seem to go back to it when I am frustrated, to no end. It just has a way of making me relax, and forget about the rest of the world. And I just felt the need, to do something I could do in my sleep.
I had these beads for sometime, and when going through all my beads to select the beads, these just spoke to me saying, "use me, use me". :) So I used size 8/0 seeds, 3mm Czech Firepolished, and Swarvoski buttons.
I really didn't know what I was going to create when I selected the beads, I just let them tell me. I guess I may be consider a little crazy listening to what beads have to say :). This is what I came up with.
I didn't put the fringe in the under part of the closure, to not have extra bulk there. I have to say, I am well pleased with the results.

  1. I let the beads speak to me all the time ... it's a lot of fun to just let your creative spirit take over, isn't it? I love what came out of it, though ... and those Swarovski buttons are to die for!!
