I'm currently trying my first large-scale Peyote Stitch beading project: I'm beading the handle of a rattle that I made a few weeks ago. The hide that I used turned out to be a beautiful light and dark. I think it's horse hide, but not certain. The colors begged for golds, yellows, reads, greens, so that's what I went with.
I also sorta fucked the pattern up a little bit, but hey; it's my first so I'm cutting myself some slack. I'll just take "finished" and be happy about it :-)
It passes the time fabulously quickly.
