New skill of the day: peyote bead stitch

Feeling inspired to add something special to my handbags I came across several images of beaded beads. After more research I discovered the peyote stitch and a few failed attempts later I think I can safely say I have harnessed a new skill.

How satisfying to see the plain wooden beads transformed into beautiful sparkly jewels that could easily adorn a bag strap or simply make a great necklace.

I’m off to continue my bead adventure armed with acrylic paint, fabric and newspaper. Good job I have the place to myself this week!

More to come……
