We here at Olivia Waite love to make beaded jewelry, and lately we’ve started expanding our knowledge of that most useful beadweaving technique: peyote stitch.
Luckily, the good people over at Fusion Beads have just posted a few new peyote patterns, so I don’t have to whip out the graph paper and laboriously color in all those boxes myself. And one of these patterns is particularly relevant to my interests:
A whole alphabet, and punctuation! A serif font, no less! Oh, the things I could make!
- My name.
- Curse words, curse words, curse words!
- A red, white, and blue choker with the words: “You are all weirdos.” I shall call it the Sam Eagle.
- Pi to however many places.
- E = mC2
- 2 + 2 = 5
- If embiggened, and embellished with myriad colors, I could do some pretty sweet illuminated capitals.
The only question is: which one to do first?
