handmade by me... one stitch at a time...

over the weekend, while nursing my husband back to health from a high fever (scared me for the last few days!), i did a small project consisting of 3 rings. hand-stitched by me using the peyote stitch with japanese delica beads and nymo thread. it has been some time since i last beaded, and hence had some difficulties with the small seed beads.

i enjoy off-loom bead weaving techniques, and do not like to rely on a pattern book. i prefer to visualize the design in my mind and get on with it. therefore, having to stop every now and then to correct the bead color and stitch count (",)

handmade peyote ring bands are now available at http://foong.etsy.com
