Collar - Rust, Purples, Coppery Browns




I'm starting to love this design. It's easy - you just work two-drop peyote working end-to-end rather than top to bottom. And with the increase in bead size from 15 to 6, lush folds develop on their own. This one was made to coordinate with a pair of copper brown shoes.

Hi Christina. Thank you. I liked the colors in this one too. I'm finding that I can get a great range of purples and off-shades in Toho beads.

BB! Room is still neat. Don't worry. It's a phase.

Smadar's Treasure - Thanks!

Wow! This is gorgeous! It must've taken forever to complete!

Oh lj. It is gorgeous. Looks 'tribal'. I can jusat see it with the shoes and black dress.

This is certainly rich looking. I liked the quick tutorial too! I can imagine it in all sorts of colors. A super piece.

Thanks LB, H, and Freebird.
LB - It didn't FEEL like it took long but I didn't time myself. It's easy and seems to grow quickly - but "quickly" probably means 15 hours!
H-That's exactly what I'm wearing it with - black. There was a lot of brown out this year, but it was a dull brown, so I had nothing to coordinate the shoes with my black clothing.
Freebird - Like I said, it's a snap to make. If you try one, post a picture?

I'd like to see a picture of it on! It is sumptuous. I like the multi-colored one, too, but even though I favor bright colors, I would probably wear this one. Beautiful and thanks for the directions.

LJ said...

Thank you Bori.
any smith - you're welcome, entirely. Got to post a pic if you make one, though!I'd love to see what someone else does with the pattern.
