For something a little different. I'm often interested in ecological questions and I am making a series of beaded art works devoted to endangered species. The first one is the California red sided garter snake. They are quite amazing. Hope to maybe auction or show in aid of these special creatures. See how it's done in the video and don't forget to like and share

Ambassador Bridge beaded bracelet part 3

I'm just loving the details in the Ambassador Bridge bracelet by Leslee Frumin in Beadwork Magazine. The addition of the fans in brick stitch disguises the potentially unsightly edges of the Peyote stitch. And the icing on the cake are the size 15 seed beads in whip stitch at the end of the fans which really make the piece sparkle. I just know my friend is going to love this. The design is really excellent and it is so easy to wear.

The ambassadors bridge bracelet - Part 2

I don't normally do 'how to's ' but here's a simple and fast odd count peyote turn, that I'm using on the Ambassador Bridge bracelet by Leslee Frumin. I'm just loving the design.
