As a recent convert to Peyote I knew this would be great for any future designs - and, of course ... as you know I do love my gadgets!
Donna knew how keen I was to create my own Cuff Bracelets and pointed me to her tutorial which takes gives you the bracelet pattern and shows you how to add the bracelet to a Cuff blank.

This Cuff is a 3/4 inch cuff ... recommended would be 1/2 inch. So as you can see there is a border either side. To my mind, this is still a WIP (work in progress) and I have it in my mind to bead a decorative edge ... eventually! Although some people do actually like it like this. What do you prefer?

Stitch for flower buds was Peyote ... yay, first time I've done peyote that is not just in rows! The necklace itself is a Brick Stitch. A nice tutorial which makes up quite quickly. Everything is included in the kit so you can just pick it up and Bead!
What's that I hear you say ... no I haven't done Week 7 Earrings yet! That's next on the agenda - well, if I didn't keep getting side-tracked, then there's the February Challenge and of course another lovely tutorial from a beady friend ...
So, I'll close here and remember:
