There is nothing like the satisfaction of seeing a project start to come together. This one is complete except for the neck strap. No, it is not as difficult as it looks. There is something very therapeutic about beading peyote and watching the picture appear. The pattern is by Amy of I-bead. She makes her patterns in paper graphic patterns which you form into a tube and bead upon. This means no counting, getting lost, recounting, etc. Once you get the first few rows onto the form, it is pure relaxation. If you get a chance tovisit one of her trunk shows, you will be amazed. Photos do not do justice to her patterns. You must see them in person to fully appreciate the colors and design.
