For Valentine's Day I made this valentine with fresh water pearl beads. The holes were so tiny, I could almost never get a needle through them, so I found a project with no needles required. I glued them straight to the card. When I figured out who to give it to, I personalized the front with her name. She liked it so much, she wants to frame it.
I'm struggling with some new Peyote Stitch beading techniques. It should be a piece of cake. I must have some kind of mental block. I'm going to keep trying though. I did finish one bead on Saturday, but I ad libbed it after losing track of where I was on the chart. I chose a color scheme of purple, pale green and yellow. It's so time consuming that I start feeling guilty that there must be better uses for my time, like making a living. At the rate I'm going, I'd have to charge a million dollars for each necklace.
