The next Challenge for the Facebook Seed Beads and More was Even Count Flat Peyote.
I submitted a photo of the first beading project I made years ago, a choker with a v-accent.
I also made another pair of earrings as Bitty Beads (see previous post), except this time, I designed them as even count flat peyote, rather than odd count.
Seedbeadster’s new Beadalong is to bead around a Cabochon. I had one I had finished some years ago.
We found this stone in the Pony Mountains near Deming, NM. At that time, the local Senior Center had a Lapidary shop. The volunteers there showed us how to sliced the stone, cut it to shape, and polish it. This is my finished pendant, front and back.
The second stone, a lace agate, was found at a yard sale. It was glued to an unattractive backing which I tried to remove, leaving a rough back. I’ve had it for quite a while, and decided now was the time to create a pendant with it. I used size 15 beads for the back, and enjoyed watching the swirl pattern develop.
Also, this month, I finished the Butterfly Vine Bracelet from a free Bead and Button pattern.
