Green Peyote Triangles Cuff

I've dipped my toes slightly further into the peyote triangle pool, and came up with this cuff.  Since adding it to my store about a week ago, it has already been featured in two treasuries, as you can see in the post below!  

I had fun with it, and it has sparked new ideas to store away in my list of things I want to make. That list should probably start materializing on paper before my brain gets too crowded.    
This cuff is available for purchase at my Etsy store!  Here is the direct link to this piece.

Speaking of my mind getting crowded with ideas - I've been on a designing spree for flat cuffs (in a variety of stitches).  However, I have a slight problem in that I don't have the beads I want for actually making them.  I also don't really have spare change to purchase said beads.  On top of that, I don't have much spare time between attempting to keep up (more like catch up!) with readings for my classes, plus doing some teaching.  You know, grad school. :)  

Someday, I hope to be able to share those cuffs with you!  In the meantime, I'm strategizing over how to save up and use my spending money for beads. :)  My husband and I have alloted ourselves monthly 'spend on whatever we want' money.  We're having to be thrifty with me in grad school, and the job market the way it is right now, but having that set amount worked into our budget is... nice.  It's guilt-free bead money!  (Little though it may be)  Now if only the sales would just start rolling in....

Oh, Ginny, I sure do sympathize with you about having the designs all figured out but not having the beads. I think a lot of beadweavers are in the same spot. Well, one day I will see your pretties and maybe one day you will see mine. LOL

I wish I could bead as much as I design! I think my hands would fall off, though. :-)

That is so fun! It's always great to find new ways to use triangles!
