My Donut Bracelet Is Almost Finished… Today?

I am working on the last donut. This bracelet is taking forever. Why, you may ask? What have I been doing?

Well, a week ago, I got tired of moving stuff to make room for stuff. I decided to tackle reorganizing my computer/craft room. Slowly the room took shape. The way I wanted it. Less clutter. Less mess.

Here are my two banquet tables stripped down to the tabletops. Too bad they can’t stay like this. But then you wouldn’t get to see my creations. 😀

Anyhoo… back to the bracelet.

See that silver tube clasp? That is what I wanted to use but it just doesn’t seem to fit. I really like it and it is a perfect end for a peyote bracelet. In and around, fold flat, stitch. But… I am thinking a matching beaded toggle will look better.

Hopefully I can show you the finished bracelet later today or tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Bracelet? Probably. Not Sure Where I Am Going With This.

Another first for me. Working with size 15/0 seed beads. And not liking it. At all. Too tiny. Think colorful grains of salt. Sprinkled all over your beading table. They are so teeny tiny that if there WAS a flaw or chip, I wouldn’t see it. I can BARELY see the HOLE!!

Rose, I think. Though sometimes, under my Ott Lite, the rose looks peach.

And get this. I even bought John Adams size 15 beading needles thinking I would need a super thin needle. But, duh, my beading thread won’t fit through the eye. Note to self: buy Super Fine Fireline. For now, I am doing OK with the needles and braided thread I normally use.

I have created these so far using the 15/0’s and 11/0 green cylinder seed beads.

Started off with a peyote circle. Made two. Stitched the outer sides together. Any idea on what I did next? Aw, go on. Guess what I did. Cute, huh.

Now… what to do with them? They measure a little over an inch in diameter.

I am thinking bracelet. Connect them with a rose flat strip of peyote.

What would you do with them?
