Congrats! Spent this morning sharing beads with my friend. She's making a necklace for a Native American wedding at sunrise in April.
I had started on a woman's choker. The beaded medallion in the center is on leather and will be bordered with braided horsehair. Instead of hairpipes, I'll be using porcupine quills. This is the first time I've beaded directly to leather, other than a little fringing. It didn't take long before I found a larger piece of leather and grabbed an embroidery hoop.
I'm hoping to make matching earrings for a set to donate to the Pow-wow auction. However, all beading is on hold until I get the fingerwoven sash completed. I'm a little bummed about that, but excited to learn something new.
