And Now For Something Completely Different

BEADING!  Over the years, I’ve tried several craft hobbies, one of which is beading.  I don’t spend much time with this, but every once in a while, I get inspired.  Last weekend, my daughter offered to sit with me at my craft table, and we spent a pleasant afternoon.

For necklaces, it’s usually a desire for a specific piece that I can’t find in the marketplace.  For the Peyote stitch pieces, it was an interest in trying something new.

The necklaces I will wear, but I have no idea what to do with the Peyote stitch pieces.

The turquoise necklace is drilled turquoise and hematite.  The center necklace is hematite and silver.  Click for larger image.  (For the record, I did not churn out all four pieces in one afternoon – the Peyote pieces I’ve had for a while and the hematite necklace was an exercise in shortening a previously-completed piece and the turquoise was the only “completed” project of the day.)
