Inspire Me Thursday - DNA


Something a bit different for IMT this week as I've been doing a lot more jewellery making than painting recently. Although I am still working on a painting inspired by the "Dear Diary" prompt and I'll post it when it is eventually finished.

When I saw the theme was DNA it made me think of the tubular peyote stitch I am working on at the moment. The beads swirl round in close strands and look like DNA.

Here is a necklace I am working on - with the strands in tubular peyote. I'm still doing something wrong because it is supposed to be much more regular and even than mine but I kind of like the random ruffled look it has at the moment.

I've beaded round an Agate slice as the pendant. Its still a work in progress because I'm hoping to add more embellishments in different shades of blue to match the different tones in the pendant.

This is beautiful! I've never tried beading, although I'd really love to spend a bunch of money on jewelry supplies. That peyote stitch is just wonderful - is it as difficult as it looks?
