A new colorway and a tuto coming up soon! :-)

I spent my New Year's Eve fighting with this uncooperative donut which didn't want to be bezeled.
It kept jumping out of the peyote strip, but in the end I won the battle and the bugger is finally trapped! *Grin*

Here's the back of the flowered donut and the beginning of the stiff kind of twisted herringbone rope that will go with it.
There are a couple more pictures Here.

The other night I was beading the ring part of a toggle clasp and decided to try to work it starting from the inner side and zip it on the outer side, instead of the other way around. It turned out great.
While I was beading it, it looked like a flared eyelet, so I had an idea about trying to bead the inner part of a stone donut. So far it seems to be working. ;-)

I've been working non stop for about 17 hours on this thing (the instructions, not the necklace; that one took a bit longer)! I started around midnight last night and now it's 5:30 PM! 
My neck is hurting, my eyes are crossing, but I'm happy I have a little something for you. :-)
I hope you like it and that my pics and instructions are understandable.

Lentils & Donuts Necklace. Shell beads, Freshwater Pearls, Size 11/0 and 15/0 Japanese seed beads. Beaded toggle clasp, twisted Herringbone rope, Peyote bezels and connectors.

I have 3 bezeled lentils left. Not sure yet what I'm going to do with them. Maybe a bracelet, or a pair of earrings and a pendant. We'll see.
