Mihana,
This bracelet is stunning.  You do things with peyote stitch that blow my mind.
Totally hitting THIS ROCKS!

Jill, thank you so much!  I had a difficult time with this one, it was a lot of fun, but not very accommodating to how I thought it should be :-P.

OMG that's got to be my favorite piece I've seen of yours so far! If you had any problems with it looking straight enough, you can't tell from any of the pictures. Looks great to me. It's a pretty blue, but I can SO see it in other "pop" colors. You should do more of these!!

Thank Jojo, I agree that pop colors would be really cool.  I've been stuck in winter colors lately and it's NOT EVEN WINTER yet!!!  Goodness.  I'm thinking, black hot pink and lime green might snap me out of this funk :-P

This is absolutely stunning. I just went on Google to look up Peyote. You've inspired me.

ME TOO!

First google, then etsy.  Now I really want to try this .....

They are seed beads right?

Now that I think about it, seed beeds are relatively cheap, compared to a lot of craft supplies (resin, glass etching cream, fabric etc) - wow, now I am really excited!  A new craft that looks awesome, but won't break the bank.  I don't know how I could have not known about peyote before .... Now I'm really excited!

Thanks JAM4ever!

I also looked at the other stuff you have posted - everything looks amazing.  I wonder, did it take years and years for you to get this good?

Thanks for the inspration, hope you have a great weekend. Grin Grin

Hey Aliped, thank you so much!  This is a relatively inexpensive craft (I know what you are talking about, I'm an avid, cross stitcher, crocehter, sketch artist, and pretty much anything else I can get my hands on), but beads have held my interest for the longest.  If I can recommend that you spend a little extra money on better quality beads, you will be so much happier with your creations.  Aiko Toho beads are wonderful, and of course Delica's take the cake!  Artbeads.com has some great prices on delica's and I tend to buy my Toho beads from an ebayer that I've used many many times.  PM me if you want her info.

Peyote takes patience, but is definitely doable.  Don't get frustrated with your first couple of attempts--it gets 100 times easier the more you do it, just keep at it!  It does not take long to get the hang of it, especially if you are artistically inclined, which pretty much every DIY crafter is. 

If I can help you out at all, let me know!  Have a wonderful weekend, and HAPPY BEADING!  :-D

I don't know squat about beading, so, that kind of looks like magic to me  Shocked Love the overlapping, and the asymmetry is awesome!
