I'm new to Craftster and really love this website. I hope it will be okay that I post this on this thread because the handbag part is less than great & this IS my greatest beading achievement. I call it a bracelet bag (cuz you wear around your wrist). I made the graph (old school with graph paper and colored pencils) based on an original drawing that I had considered for a tattoo. It's peyote stitch the sacred hearts go around the bag, 3 in total. It's lined with red silk but I couldn't get that pic to turn out
forgive me I also really struggled with a shot of it on my wrist.

oh yea, there's a little heart charm on it

The bracelet part

 This website is finally making learn how to use my camera and computer .(I really suck at it!!!) But feedback really makes it worth it for me. Thanks for checking this out.

That's gorgeous, and I KNOW a lot of work went into it. The best part is that you designed it on graph paper yourself. What an acomplishment! Be proud, fellow beader!  Smiley
