I am thinking I have so much for sale in my Etsy Shop that now I want to slow down and learn some new techniques and work on some more elaborate pieces. I want to focus on doing more necklaces with some great focals. I just need to make the time.

I am trying to get better at right angle weave - this bracelet was pretty easy to do once I got the hang of the RAW - I am going to make another in black and gold.

Peyote cuff bracelet called "Shamrock". The band is made with size 8 seed beads in white and size 8 green beads as the shamrock pattern. The stitch is peyote with gold size 11 seed beads used for picots (from a pot of gold maybe). The closure is a hand made loop and toggle. The band is a little over 1 inch wide. This bracelet will fit a size 6 1/2 to 6 3/4 inch wrist.
I have been playing with my Bead Creator program - the shamrock was pretty simple to design as was the Valentine heart but I need to start somewhere right!
