51  Re: Pretty Peyote Ring in Beads: Completed Projects by artzyfartzy on: September 26, 2004 05:22:48 PM

Here's a few I made some time ago.  I added small glass flower beads and some silver shapes (heart & flowers) that I made from PMC.  I reinforced the shapes so if they caught on anything they wouldn't fall off.  I never had any problems.  You can find tons of peyote patterns at www.about.com in the beadwork section and also at www.bead-patterns.com (free ones).  Remember to work the ends of your threads to the middle so you don't have fraying on the edges.

ohhh i like your rings very much! i never thought of adding shapes to them!!!! i love'em! .. I usually knot my 2 ends  and add a drop of super glue to the knot to secure it?  so after the 2 sides of the ring are weaved together - you just take each end and weave to the middle then cut the remaining thread?  I guess i took the lazy route Tongue

Ok, this is reallllly an old post ..u probably already finished your frame - but I thought i'd reply anyways ...

I redid a thrift store find that was the same thing. sorta...no flowers ..but somewhat of a textured fancy edge [ see pic ]

I sanded the old paint off slightly [ I didnt sand even all of it..just until the frame felt smooth ...... and I was careful around the inset where the design is.  ( I would take the lowest grade sandpaper around the flowers and use the corner of the sand paper to get it the grooves ) I cleaned it , made sure it was dry and sprayed it with 3 coats of silver spray paint.  

The inside is even the cardboard I was using to spray paint on! it had a neat look to it from being randomly sprayed, so I just cut it to fit the frame and put..yup..

A picture of Archie + Edith from All in the Family. I'm an Archie Bunker fanatic.  crazy enough this pic is in my bedroom!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've just been using TACKY GLUE on some really small pieces.  It works really well.  I glued some butterfly images to illustration board then used an exacto knife to cut them out.  I painted the back and edges black then varnished the whole thing.  I then spread a thin layer of TACKY GLUE over the image and sprinkled on the glitter beads.  I Let it sit for a few minutes then carefully tapped off the excess.

this scan doesn't do it justice!

the coverage isn't always perfect, but they all look great nonetheless.  

it looks GREAT! i would of been scared of small things because i tried doing the microbeads-thing to my "turtles-in-love" logo..but i guess the image had too many details..it didnt look good.  Sad  ...ii've been making some other stuff too..i gotta scan some stuff .. tacky glue is just plain ole glue right?...can u tell i dont know my glues well Wink..  

the butterflie is gorgeous!
