The house and ring were all created using peyote stitch. It was the first time I've ever created anything really structural with beads so I'm really happy with the way it turned out!

I didn't really keep track of how long it took me to make, but I would say at least five hours. Most of which was spent weaving the leftover threads into the peyote stitch, haha. (Check out the pictures of the ring in progress to see what I'm talking about).

Eensy teensy house!

Front of the house while being worn. Wouldn't it be cool to wear three rings in a row, all with different colored little houses on them?

Backside of the house.

Other side of the ring. The peyote stitch makes for a very comfortable ring!

Here's some pictures of the house in progress:

Two walls attached and the roof in the background.

Next time I might make more of an effort to make things on the same thread. Like instead of making the walls and then attaching them, I could have used the thread left over from the ring and made the walls directly on the ring).

Another shot of the same.

Attaching the roof. So many threads!

Thanks for checking my entry out, it's my first time entering a challenge! Smiley

Always in need of supplies, especially fabric- let's do a personal swap. I'll craft in return for fabric (I am a fabric tart)

I really like this!  I admire how neat and tight all the stitches are, and the uniformity of the work.  Good job!   
Love the day!

I love this.  I just finished 2 plain peyote rings but they were just bands.  Now I'm inspired.......

Thank you for sharing! Wink
