Evolutions

Well, to say this is new for me is a serious understatement! Yes, I know, I will just have to get the hang of it. I mean, where or should I say, how do I add the links to my web sites? I am just going to have to muddle through until I get it figured out or hound someone else for this much needed help :) A day later...as you can see, I got that much needed help and have been able to add my shop links, thank you Mandy:)

So, for my first bite.... 

Vera, totally threw me when she showed me a beautiful,  Flat Peyote rolled Cuff she had made. This was after having started beading in July 2010, giving it up that same December and then, suddenly, taking it up again a short while ago. I was gobsmacked and I loved it. I really wanted to write the pattern and so I paid her for her idea, reworked it to be a Tubular Peyote piece and named it Evolutions. 

The pattern is now in progress and Vera will also receive royalties from the sales. She worked her original design using Red Czech and Miyuki beads and I have made a another 2 (busy with a 3rd) using only Miyuki beads.

Make no mistake...These are BIG and are for the bold and daring wearer. They also chew through your bead stash (40g 8o beads alone) and take just that little bit longer to make than you think they will but.....they are really really cool to wear.

Hi Heather I bought this pattern on your Etsy shop it was love a first sight ! Unfortunately I used Toho instead of Miyuki, probaly the size is different beause it's way too big for my wrist so I'm turning it into a necklace, I'll send you a pix when it's done !
Congratulations on your work
Ingrid
