These are spectacular!  You have captured the image of the sea and sea life most amazingly.  These truly are Art as much as any fabulous sculpture or painting.

They are stunning.  You've inspired me to go something with seed beads again, I went through a phase of making things with them but they're so small and picky, they irritate me too much!

A few questions though...

- what's peyote?

- what exactly is beading?

- Can you recommend any books for someone who wants to try something like this?   Like basic beading or whatever Smiley

Umm...I think that's it!  Thank you in advance if you get a moment to answer my questions, I hit 'this rocks' because...it does!

(another question, are you from Scotland?  I'm in Aberdeen Smiley )

Yaay I get to tell my hubbie that I 'inspired' someone today! how cool is that  Grin

ok and now for some answers

- what's peyote?

Peyote is one type of the many bead-weaving stitches (ie using thread needle and beads). for more info see about.com or just search for 'beadwork' or 'bead weaving' - there are hundreds of sites out there offereing tutorials and guides. Also, since you are in Scotland (ie the UK), there is the Beadworkers Guild who sell a range of very good beginners pattern books.

- what exactly is beading?

Uummm..anything that is made with beads tecnically

- Can you recommend any books for someone who wants to try something like this?   Like basic beading or whatever Smiley

the one I started with was this one which i think is a really good mix of clear instructions for a beginner with more complex beading techniques further on. Also my Husband bought me this one which is actually a colection of 3/4 bead instrucions books gathered together.

Umm...I think that's it!  Thank you in advance if you get a moment to answer my questions, I hit 'this rocks' because...it does!

(another question, are you from Scotland?  I'm in Aberdeen Smiley )

Yes, Im in Glasgow. and thanks for the 'This Rocks"  Grin Dont know if you are interested (and can afford or stand the train/bus/car ride) I am a member of a local bead group (we're about the only one of two in the whole county) who meet every couple of months on a saturday for 4 hours - if you were interested in comming along just PM me with your email address and I'll forward you the newsletter with all the info. Our next meeting is in November and we'd be glad to have you join us. We are a total mix of complete beginner beaders to experienced beading tutors who range from 14 to 70ish. We call ourselves "Beadwildered"  Grin I know I would love to meet a fellow Craftster - rather that telling everyone else about the site  Wink

this goes for any other Scottish beader who are interested - just PM me for more info

hope this helps  xx
