Bracelet Green

I had a new color challenge in my beading daily group. This time the colors were brown, blue and green. I came up with this bracelet. I just love this group. It has definitely inspired me to explore new possibilities.

I made this bracelet with a right angle weave stitch. It's become one of my favorite stitches. This bracelet is called "Garden Path". It reminds me of neat little rows of flowers that one might find in their garden.

This is a bracelet I made for a color challenge in a beading group I belong to. The beading group is Beading Daily. An awesome group for those of us who need to bead. One of the color groups was green, orange and hot pink. I came up with this. I'm not sure this is a combination I would have chose on my own. That's why I like this group.

Peyote Necklace

I made this necklace a few years back for a beading contest. I didn't win but it gave me a chance to try my hand at peyote stitch. It was the first contest I had entered. I think it came out well for my first attempt. I call it "Gardenia Delight". The basic pattern for the panel was by Deb Moffett-Hall.
