Peyote Rookie

These 11º beads look big under a 5x magnifying mirror! Peyote stitching is one of those things I had to try. Turns out to be fun, if one likes repetition and monotony in creative work, and I do... in small quantities. This will be a shawl or draped neckline for the doll, falling from her shoulders. I'm excited to work on it, but hunched-over beadwork has given me a stiff neck. Ahh, stretchhhhh...

I'm still covering bag book journal pages with initial paint layers. A little bit each day is all I can accomplish while pages dry. It is a welcome change, and a time to stretch, while beading.
