Peyote Stitch Stars part 2
Morning ladies! I'm feeling a bit better than my last post. I've had headaches, but no migraines so far. For those that have never had a migraine, it really isn't a headache, it's so much worse than that. The problem is, I don't seem to be able to get the doctor to understand that! I have an appointment on Friday so keep your fingers crossed I can persuade him to refer me to the hospital where there is a migraine specialist.
Boring health stuff over, do you remember my peyote stitch stars? What do you mean "no"? Are you trying to tell me you don't memorise my posts as well as printing them out to read in bed at night?? Go to the back of the class!
After the class, I went home, got out my bead stash and started making stars. I could not stop. They are so quick to make when you have the hang of it. I decided to try a little cascade design in size 9 beads.
I had a different idea of how I was going to put them together, but it didn't work out. I'm pretty happy with the final arrangement though. I added some simple earrings. I was going to do three stars hanging underneath each other, but wasn't sure if they'd be too much. Not wearing earrings myself, I never really know!
Next came size 10 beads with white centres and blue outlines, I used 7 stars in a row.
That got me thinking... how would a rainbow look? FAB! If I do say so myself...
Last, but not least, I decided to play with the colour arrangement. The ones with the grey centres and teal outlines are the same as all those above (in size 10 beads), the grey-outlined ones are a bit different. I changed colour a couple of rows early, I quite like them!
This will all be stock for the bead fair, so I hope someone besides me loves them!
