On Saturday I spent the whole day at a beading workshop where I worked on what was to be the back of an amulet purse but I have changed the plan and it will now be one side of a box. It is may fist attempt a peyote stitch and like everything else I do my tension is very tight. This means that the piece stands up all by itself and has no flex in it, much more suitable for a box rather than as a purse. Once the box is completed I shall attempt the purse again making a conscious effort not to pull it so tight. I am about half way through the first side and hope to have the box completed by the end of 2006.
Sunday I felt like working on something quick and easy so made myself this simple beaded necklace in my favourite colour - purple. The camera has, once again, drained the colour but the beads are all dark purple - in real life.
