hello!  its exciting to finally post something in the jewelry section!

yesterday i decided i really wanted to make one of those bead-tube necklaces, so i looked online for tutorials and found something on how to bead crochet a rope.  it didnt work.  so to day, i remembered seeing the word "peyote" and, curious, looked up how to do it.  i ended up with a bracelet three and a half hours later!

its a fun stitch; getting it started for the first time was a little tedious but after that, it was pretty easy.  except for the fact that my fifteen feet of embroidery floss yielded only six inches of work, im pretty happy!

after i finished the tube, i tied it off, threaded a ribbon through, and tied a bow. 

thanks for looking!

The color of the beads against that of the ribbons is gorgeous.  I really admire the striking visual texture of this bracelet, and I'd wear it in a heartbeat!  Smiley

PS: are you serious?  15 feet down to six inches?  Wow!

That's beautiful; it looks like you might have snagged it from the produce section this morning; in other words, it looks very organic, very nice thing to capture.

My dream project is to sew a black and white velvet chessboard that is USCF-technically correct and also zips up to hold the chess pieces inside Cheesy

That's pretty!  I really like your picture quality, too... something about the lighting makes it look like winter berries, in a non-christmas-ornament sort of way.

thanks everyone!  your comments are really lovely.

brookowens - google "even count tubular peyote stitch tutorial" (long, i know) and you will find an illustrated tute by "beadsphere".  its very helpful!

thanate - thanks!  the red beads were the largest i owned that could fit a needle, so i had to search for the right ribbon color to take away from the christmasyness Smiley

b3gonias - i had the same reaction!  it reminds me a lot of indian corn.

bunsenhoneydew - thank you!  its wonderful that you pick up on all the contrasts (texture, color, etc).  and yes, i was amazed by the string length too - the tutorial unfortunately didnt give me any heads up on how much string to make how much bracelet (well, actually, i wanted it to be a necklace.  fifteen feet DID sound reasonable!)  im sure the fact that my beads were larger than usual effected length too.  but im not proficient (or patient) enough to use those itsy bitsy seed beads yet!

ive been encouraged to make another, so next time i dig up some time ill create a new fun color combo.  thanks everyone!
