Beaded Peyote Rattle..... Done!
I finally finished up the beadwork on the gourd rattle! It turned out fairly well, although Im not wild about the middle portion of beadwork (with the little white feathers going around) as the bead count going around was slightly off and that caused the pattern to not repeat evenly, but naturally I am inclined to notice every little flaw! I would also like to have worked more green beads into the design... perhaps I will revise it at some point. For the time being anyhow it will live quite happily next to the beaded Peyote prayer fan in its protective plexiglas case. Below is an installation view, and an unrelated view below that... a portion of my "sea curios" grouping that I just love looking at!
More posts to follow soon-ish! Thank You for visiting!
