Austrian beader, Uli observed something interesting about flat peyote when different sized beads were used in bracelet designs. The bracelets then bulged out in the center. So she figured out how to take advantage of the effect for her stunning sculptural peyote necklace tutorial over on her blog, Not Without My Beads. The Download button to get to her PDF sharing site is towards the bottom. And yes it works. (My apologies for yesterday's lost video link - I had not realized the designer deleted from Youtube the day before)
Please note the tutorial consists of a color coded chart to help with the different sizes of beads. It does not include the instructions for the clasp which Uli accomplished with a peyote bezel gemstone cabochon and herringbone stitch. So this tutorial is best for intermediate and advanced beaders.
Uli uses Fireline D. If you normally buy Fireline from fishing shops like I do and are unfamiliar with Fireline "D" is - it is the 6 lb version!
