    Oh my! Laud this is SO cool!
    I love all the detail with the tiny beads but it makes my eyes and brain too dizzy.

    I tried a very simple 2thread bracelet at a bead class. I made 3 of them, was proud of myself for the effort, and then promptly forgot how to do it so I could never torture myself again.

    PPR says:

    Laud: WOW, WOW, WOW. I love this and such beautiful work!
    I am in the process of learning how to peyote stitch, etc. Next comes this stitch. :)

    Laud says:

    PPR, this is peyote stitch. Each row builds on the one before.
