What a week this already is!! I have to tell you that I have found new energy and new inspiration in the new year already! I thought that I would make my Fascinating Friday even more fascinating but including something that IS FASCINATING!
When I am doing a peyote bracelet, there are NO KNOTS anywhere in it!! I simply thread my working thread back through the beadwork in several circles and then leave MOST of the tail in the work. To start a NEW thread I do the same thing wind it around and then cut off the tail - moving the thread to start working again. For me, this is even done on the STARTING rows of the bracelet!
This one still has the starting tail - hanging out of the work
This one has the tail finished and then cut off.
Yesterday I finished and listed my current project and then started a new one. First, let me know what you think of the one I finished. It sold within about 2 minutes of listing it!!!
Here is the video of it being made if you would like to watch it - http://youtu.be/RhhoBiQBwQU
And then I started a new project, here are the colors;
And remember you can keep watching my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day to watch this one grow and develop.
