As I mentioned in my last post, life for the past two months has been at a crazed level of busy. Like "turned up to 11" crazy. What better time to take on one more thing, right? But I'm a seedy gal (or "seed bead afficionado" so my mama doesn't faint if she reads this), so I couldn't resist.
Because I can't pass a challenge without adding more difficulty to it. You know, like the Olympic triple flip dive off the high board doesn't really count unless you add a backward twist in pike position? Yep, that's me. So I made one peyote piece, one herringbone piece, and one that combines both.
Settle into that comfy place, grab the beverage, and enjoy! (And you can click on each picture for a bigger version)
Here's the peyote bracelet - simple, but with a twist of texture. Perfect to fiddle with when you're stuck in a boring meeting...
For the herringbone piece, I pulled out some beautiful lapis/malachite heishi that I'd been hoarding for years and years, just waiting for the right project -- this seemed like the right time to break 'em out.

combined blues and greens in these babies!

Thanks, Christine and Therese for giving me another reason to play with the tiny beads! And go check out the other seedy folks who participated:
