Geometrics: 3-D Triangle Bead

Hey! It’s the Jean-Power-Inspired Peyote Power Triangle Pillow Talk Ring (this is the top view, see the next post down for a side shot) with a same-size stitch overlay. This is how we will be presenting projects in the book, with lots of step by step photos, neatly diagrammed. Those of you who are handy with peyote can easily see how this goes, right? Just simple circular peyote, increasing on one side and decreasing on the other, to form a lovely little puffy pillow, just right for your Barbie waterbed.

Dustin made this one into a ring, which we’ll post as the first CraftTub project video.  And we’re working on the Shank Card, one of the full-size collector’s cards to go with the book, neatly showing ten different ways to make a sturdy and beautiful ring shank out of beads.
