This is a close-up of one twig of the pruned branch. Someone asked if I was gluing the beads to the twigs and I realized that by not gluing, but making peyote stitched strips, I get a lovely diamond design. I love how the bend of the branch moves the beads. I was able to slip this one 'arm' into the scanner hoping it would give you a better idea of how the beads relate to the stick-ness of the twig.
Have one more green strip to put on this branch and I will be able to start the yellow set. Perhaps by tomorrow if I have a good day today.
