I’ve found a good description of increases and decreases for flat Peyote :)

Last time I combined the little Peyote beads with paper beads, but I find this bracelet interesting, too.
If you make it longer, you simply get a necklace ;-)
And you can make wonderfully matching earrings and rings.
Peyote Tube Bracelet
I find these earrings soo cute!
And they are great to practice the Peyote technique, just as the beads that I combined with my paper beads.
Now at last I can make matching earrings for my paper beads bracelet ;-))
Ehm, I did find another tutorial (just in case) ;-)
If the leaves are called ‘Russian St. Petersburg leaves’ then I think that they are supposed to be made for the St.Petersburg necklace – that stands to reason, doesn’t it? In any case they would match wonderfully.
I don’t like the necklaces in Dutch Spiral technique soo much, but I tried it out to see how it is.
In principle it’s nothing else than tubular peyote (instructions see below) where you work a bead loop in one place.
Because I didn’t like the very broad loop part with 18 beads in the instruction I only used 6 beads per loop.
Well, I like it and I was especially amazed again about how I get lost in the always similar moves and how much this relaxes me.
Perhaps I will make another looong necklace, just to relax ;-))

There are soo beautiful stamps, why not make a little piece of jewelry from them?
One way is the already presented lamination, another the beading of stamps.
And with a little more thought I will get other ideas as well ;-))

Laminated Stamps Necklace
While surfing the internet I found this necklace and found it amazing.
I thought that it should be easy to made: you make the mdedaillons with flat round Peyote (see links below) just as for the bottom of the beaded bottle, but then you work the pattern back again.
This way you get a slightly thicker medaillon in place of a flat disk.
Unfortunately I’m not so good concerning colours and so I’m not really satisfied with my own medaillon (see photo).
Perhaps I should have printed and coloured in one of the graphs (see links below) to use this as template?!
One day I really will do this ;-)

To make sure that the necklace doesn’t look boring I simply made a little Peyote bead like for my paper beads bracelet, pulled it over the necklace and worked little bead fringes on the bead like for the pages 9 & 10 of my artist book – looots ;-)
Well, I like it ;-)
When I saw the little beaded wooden spools I directly wanted to go for making them myself!
Luckily I didn’t have any wooden spools at home at the moment ;-))
