    Thank you! Beadwork is repetitive and very therapeutic (at least to me) :-)

    Beautiful work, Do you use kumihimo on the braid? or you do everything peyote?

    I just started kumihimo, that I thought is not something I would want to do and here we go…lol It does help me to calm down … in a way…

    Thank you all for great comments! @AllureofGemsGlamJulia: Thank you! No, I don’t use kumihimo (in fact I did not know what it was until you’ve mentioned it :-) ) The rope is regular bead crochet (good tutorial here: http://www.beadersshowcase.com.....gPost:3497). It is supposed to be faster and easier than peyote but wasn’t for me until I really understood it.

    I aspire to create something as elaborate as this one day. This will be one of my inspirations. I’ve never done any bead embroidery, so I will start with something simple . . . and build up to this. WOW!!!
