    Good enough! Just wanted to warn you, I hadnt thought of that detail when I attempted to do something on a curve like that and it was a pain.

    If careful selection of your bead size doesnt give you enough space you can always add in an extra partial row.....

      Oh yeah, I have thought about the parital row! But we do get those really skinny beads... gotta use them somewhere! :)

      I know a woman who throws out all her odd size beads, such a waste!

        Randy are you using gourd stitch or the two drop peyote? I found that beading a ring like for a dreamcatcher works just fine if I use a 2 drop peyote...but is easier the larger the ring.

          There are times I have to use a cane, I have three or four .... none of them plain, but none as gorgeous as yours either! The one I get the most laughs out of is NEON PINK, it used to be a crook over 6 ft long, and they thought it would be a joke to cut it off and give it to me for a cane, NOPE my favorite color... plus I don't have to worry about ruining it.

          I can't bead ..... nor can I imagine having the patience to do what you have done .... as I said, simply gorgeous!!

            Thank you :)

            I have a small cane I got at the second hand store, (my favorite place to shop) :) the cane is so tiny, and very old, I have not had the heart to consider beading on it yet...

              Keely I was looking at that you cane again (couldn't help myself) and I like the yellow, orange and red at the bottom!!!!! I really do hope you leave it instead of ripping it out.

                Nope I started it in brick stitch. I havent tried to do a ring with a peyote stitch before. The ring is also a little on the small side. Its about 4 inches in diameter. Its an old plastic macreme hoop so the material is about 1/2 inch in diameter.

                I'm trying to work my way through all of the projects I have started but not finished. The vest is first on my list.... ;)

                      Randy, I have made a few dreamcatchers using the wire hoops you get at Walmart, the 3 inch are perfect for hanging in the car. I wrapp mine with leather thong once all the way around. I've done a few where I added a layer of felt in a few places and did one drop peyote. Didn't turn out too bad. I've been considering doing one beaded all the way around.

                                Seriously .. you have done an excellent job! And thanks for sharing the history behind the cane too! I love hearing stories of how this project was picked or the pattern.. colors... I always try to have a reason behind what I do, so I love to hear when others do too.

                                  by WaxeNuZhinga
                                  Well, I tried my first piece of side stitch this weekend and it turned out OK but I had lots of trouble trying to keep tension on the work without distorting the shape. Does anyone have any tricks on keeping good tension on the threads?

                                  Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated....

                                  I have been beading for almost a year and a half now, and I love it. I do all sorts of...

                                  The Amazing Beading Heddle that YOU can make
                                  by docat
                                  I had never used a beading heddle, but a lot of traditional beaders used a heddle. I can see a few advantages. One thing, you wouldn't have to have a needle. You could thread the beads through some stiff sinew or thread.

                                  You wouldn't have to worry about dropped rows.

                                  Hello, I am starting a men's northern set and I had a few beadwork questions regarding what to bead on, and the best way to construct certain things where it looks clean, professional, and will last a few years. I am not new to beading, but I only know how to bead on leather and deer sinew, which isn't...

                                  Hi!! I have finally decided that I am going to do a picture show on doing applique work. I will be starting this before the end of the week and will take me some time to do as it will be done in real time. Anyhow I have chosen to use size 13 cut beads for this project and some not cut as well. I will...
