Peyote Circles Necklace Is Finished

Image Hosting by

I worked on this necklace most of yesterday. Wanted to finish it so I could move on to something else.

How about Bead Happy for a name? It reminds me of little faces. Smiling faces. Need to pick another name. Just saw Bead Happy in the book I am learning from. I’ll come up with something different. Circles and Chains.Β  Circle Art.

I took over 40 photos trying to get the best pictures I could. So I will bore you with 2 more. πŸ™‚

Supplies used to make this set.

  • 8/0 seed beads in black, bronze, green, blue and white
  • black 11/0 seed beads for loops to hang circles
  • sterling silver ear wires
  • jump rings – silver plated, 6mm & 4mm, 20 gauge
  • vintage black metal oblong buttons
  • Bead Smith silver wire with copper core, 16 gauge, running thru peyote tube
  • Black Lace chain links – 36″
  • 2 small lobster claws to hang small length of chain holding circles
  • 2 rondelle shaped glass beads holding tube in place on the wire

To create the 8″ peyote tube, I strung 80 size 8/0 seed beads.

For closure, the chain link loops around the black metal button on the left side.

    Thank you, thank you, everyone.

    Last night I made a circle on my own. Didn’t look at the instructions. Added beads where I thought they needed to go. And it turned out GREAT!!
