What the Wednesday?!?
Beading around the Cab.
Most Beadweavers do it.
I tried in once a few years back...and left it in the unfinished pile.
So this new year, it is one of my goals to learn it and do it well. I started with beautiful ceramic cabs, using a peyote stitch around it. I tried and tried and tried. I ran into the same problem every time of not making the peyote rounds big enough. Frustrated, I put the needle down and thought about why I want to bead around the cab. It is because I want to bead around river rocks that are too thick to drill. So I picked up some rocks, switched to a herringbone & netting technique and here are the results. The first rock is from Twin Lakes, Colorado. The second rock is from the shores of Lake Michigan.
Tell me what you think. And let us know what you are working on and if it is turing out as you had hoped.
