I have not been beading lately - well I have been beading but doing an awful lot of ripping out. Lorelei had a post on her blog the other day about orphan beads. This got me thinking about beading with seed beads and about orphans - with seed beads the orphans can be a large number - not enough left over for a new complete project but still quite a lot of beads. I started looking through my seed beads and got together a bunch of orphans in gold and earth colors. This peyote bracelet is made up of size 6 and size 8 seed beads - and I didn't rip it out!.
