These are two chokers I made for my nieces for Christmas.  My first completed items in Peyote stitch -- odd count, delica beads on nymo thread.

100,000 Thank YOUs!! to Jam4Ever for her great advice!

My hope is that the loop system for clasping will allow them to grow with the girls.

My questions:  Would even-count Peyote allow better centering of designs?
                        Is even-count what is used to create curves and waves?

All advice welcome!   Cheesy

Very pretty, and great job on your first attempt at peyote stitch!

To answer your question, even count peyote is good if you are doing abstract designs, but if you need a design to be centered (think diamond shapes) then you'll need to do odd count.

Those are both beautiful. I like the colours in the darker one, especially.
