This piece continues the series that started with the pi necklace made in Gail's class. Having made two more or less following the pattern, I now strayed off into new territory, incorporating two smaller donuts instead of one large. Everyone else's peyote tubes were either plain or showed very regular patterns, so I experimented with the freeform style I was using for the focal point.
The focal point is more sculptural than the other two donut pieces. At this time I rendered my peyote 3D by the simple expedient of twisting a section of beadwork and stitching to another section. The accent can be threaded with the matching peyote tube in several different ways; one is shown in the second picture, which also shows the reverse of the first image.
Materials and Techniques: Picture jasper, citrine, snowflake obsidian, glass, sterling, and brass beads, nylon. Peyote and fringing.
