Adventures in Beading

The Peyote Stitch Bangle

This project requires about a bazillion toho and hex beads, about 12 yards of fire-line, and I don't even want to think about how many hours...I mostly did it in while watching my shows over the last month. Hardly any cost, supplies wise, but nobody will ever SELL these because it's so labor-intensive!

But, it's sparkly! I love it! And that's saying a lot, after staring at it for so long, that I can still love it!
Next up, something with big and chunky beads using eye pins....and not as many hours. I'm feeling the need for a 1 hour start to finish piece!


  1. That's beautiful. I love it. Well done you!

  2. Wow, you have some serious patience. It is very cute!!

  3. Holy Cow Lady! That is amazing! Someday, when we are both old and have nothing better to do, you can teach me to make that. Of course by them we won't be able to see those tiny little beads, but that is besides the point.

  4. Nice work on that one! I really like how it turned out.

  5. whoa that LOOKS like it took some serious time to finish. Show it off! It looks amazing. great job. :)
