peyote stitch flower brooches

This project took awhile to make, maybe 8-10 hours just to make all the petals and leaves. The hardest was making the pink flower petals, using the thinnest needle, the beads would crack at the tip of the petal and I would have to start all over....

Assembling the brooches took another 2 hours. This project is the last in my beads course and I can now get a certificate for it. My next class starts in 2 weeks and I'll be doing projects which review the different stitches that I've learned.

square stitch heart lariat

This project took over 10 hours. Each heart needed 2 sides sewn together.

The easiest part was putting it together. (sorry this photo is blurry).
