Does this count as completed even though the clasp system doesn't work, and I can't figure out how to polish the copper beads without harming the green ones?



Peyote stitch, delica beads, nemo thread.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

I love it!

I have no idea about "proper" but is the problem that when you put the four beads through the loops, they just slip out? Have you tried putting two through the loops towards the inside and two through the loops towards the outside (so two would be against the skin?). If this was for your own personal wear, you could also weave a piece of green thread through the clasps once it was on and take it out when you want to take it off... (like I said, I have no idea about "proper" Smiley )

Sorry - I don't even have any bad suggestions for polishing the beads...

Slippage is exactly the problem.  I like your idea!  Ooo, or, do you think it would look cool if I used two of the beads at each point, but put the second ones out a bit on a beaded dangle?  So they'd be kinda like feathers?

That would look great! I bet that having them out a bit would keep them from slipping back through as easily.
