So I spent a good portion of my time trying to bend this piece to my will, only to find that it would simply not do what I told it to.  My husband returned home from training last night which instantly relaxed me--I decided, what the heck, I'm going to let this piece decide what it wants to do, and well, this is what I got.  What do you guys think?  I prefer a little more symmetry, but, like I said, this piece was NOT cooperating.  :-P

Thanks for looking!

This is absolutely stunning. I just went on Google to look up Peyote. You've inspired me.

WOW!!!  I'm so stoked I could do that for you!  Good luck in your peyote endeavor, and if you need any help let me know!

How long do these take you? It seems like you crank one out almost every night. They are amazing.

LOL, it depends on the piece (size, pattern, style), but I can normally have one finished in about 8-10 hours.  I end up staying up really late--my husband is a cop, he works night shift, so sleeping is kind of difficult (I worry about him when he's at work), so I end up beading to keep my mind busy and keep me from worrying as much.

what's not to like?  This piece is unique and beautiful!  I've never seen a peyote bracelet like it.  Cheesy

OMG that's got to be my favorite piece I've seen of yours so far! If you had any problems with it looking straight enough, you can't tell from any of the pictures. Looks great to me. It's a pretty blue, but I can SO see it in other "pop" colors. You should do more of these!!
