Oooh I love what you're doing with the leaves! Thanks for the tutorial. Just in time for spring.
Your handflower is amazing!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: What would be good for this 3D beaded project? (more info below) on: March 20, 2010 08:32:27 AM
Yeah I see people use fishing line in their 3d beadwork and wonder how the heck they did that. I use fireline or powerpro for most of my weaving, 10lb or 6lb test...I get nervous with anything lighter than that. With a 6lb test, you can go through the same bead at least 4 times with ease. You should be fine with the 8lb too.
Have fun, happy beading!

Sounds like you need to try circular peyote stitch:


6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to make a piece of beading more sturdy? on: January 27, 2010 09:03:45 AM
I love the beaded boxes, but they are a commitment!

MinnieMay, when I want a piece of jewelry "stiffened" I use floor polish. It smells a little at first, but that fades.
Get yourself some "future" floor polish, and a travel spray bottle from the drug store. Use the spray bottle and give it a couple sprays on each side and hang it to dry.
Good luck!

It's beautiful!
Liquid Graffiti is a great name for it!
And don't worry about being "lazy". Everyone goes through it at one point or another...just getting over a lazy patch myself.

Feast Your Eyes, I'm pretty hard on rings too. I'm a hoop dancer, so any jewelry I wear is going to have pressure put on it by the hoop.
Having said that, the weakest part of any of the rings would probably be the bugle beads. They stand up to a lot, but if you slammed your hand in a door or something, they would be the first to crack.

I use Fireline (at least 6lb test) for all my weaving.
Nothing will happen to them if they get wet. When I had dreadlocks, I had peyote stitch dreadlock sleeves on my dreads and never took them off, not in the shower or anything and I never had one break or get icky from being wet.

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.
