I started off thinking I was making a necklace out of tubular peyote. Lot of bright colors, and some matte black for a stained glass look. However, when I finished, I realized that it was not flexible enough for the neck. So..... add a little braided suede, and voila, it's a belt! It's 5 feet long, and so can be worn by folks with a variety of waist sizes. The beaded portion is 17 inches. You can, of course, find the belt in my Etsy shop. :D I'm pretty pleased with it, and will probably have to make more at some point.
ps - see post below to win one of three polymer clay buttons!!
