This is what I do at night while "watching" (actually, listening to) TV. I make earrings with some of my favorite beads. (Beads ... Beads ... BEADS! Cannot get enough of BEADS!)

Peyote Amulet Pouch

This is my first peyote-stitch amulet pouch, approx. 2-1/2" x 3-1/2", with a 26" bead chain. The closure is actually just an exaggerated fringe attached to the back of the pouch, and tossed over the front to keep the bag closed while being worn.

My friends were amused to discover that my "amulet" hidden inside, the first time I wore this piece, was a 40%-off coupon from Hobby Lobby.

Ndebele Lariat

Another Ndebele rope necklace, but this one is made with the tinier triangle beeds, and is 48" long, with sterling silver beadcaps.
