Tubular Multicolored Lariat

About this design:

Long lariat of 11/0 seed beads. With flowers and vines and bands. Used a tubular peyote stitch - after the first half was finished I had to reverse the stitch and change the flowers from red, blue, orange to orange, blue, red. So confusing.


11/0 seed beads - raspberry red AB, orange luster, blue, rainbow cream, yellow

    Outstanding! I love the colors, the fringe, and all the different ways you’ve shown that it can be worn. I have quite a few latiats, and I’ve never considered wearing them as in the step 2 photo. The flowers thru-out are great. :)

    Who knew you could wear a lariat so many ways?! Such a beauty BLE! Wow! You design such beautiful pieces. I’m constantly amazed by your skill with tiny tiny little beads. I love every single detail of this wonderful necklace.

    It does sound confusing BLE. But as always, the stitching is flawless. I’m sorry I didn’t see your post until tonight, and for everyone else I haven’t commented on, all your designs are great, as usual. I’ve broken out in shingles, even in one ear! And then this morning I fell and hit a side table, taking a blow like a left hook to the ribs and abdomen. I’m fine, just beat up. So I have been resting and moving slow. I will look in on what everyone is doing again in a few days.

    Thank you all very much. You are all so nice. This design uses a base of 10 beads. It’s a peyote stitch so with each round you use 5 beads – I’ll include a photo of my sampler, If you use 12 or 14 beads you can get better designs but the tube gets so large that it kind of collapses.
    CC – It took several tries to come up with that knot. Ha.
    KR – So sorry to hear about your troubles. Shingles is the nastiest disease. Hope you get well soon.
