A Teenie, Tiny, Bead Bowl

This is a little tiny bowl made out of beads. It is just the right size to hold a couple of rings while you wash your hands. It was on the cover of one of the beading magazines a couple of years ago, I jumped at the chance to get it, since my friend had taken a class with the designer and had paid quite a bit.

The bowl has a very pretty spiral pattern. It is stitched in peyote stitch. The construction is a little like crochet, since the shape is formed from adding beads where you would do an increase in crochet.


My mother would scold because the last thread is still hanging. I wonder where my beading needles are so I could fix that?

I don't know how to crochet, but your bowl is KEWL!!!

Would I scold???? That habit of cutting finishing threads came from MY mother, because I had a grade school classmate who did quite a bit of sewing, but her pieces all looked sloppy because of the hanging threads, so mom made me FINISH. Love

This is absolutely lovely. Do you remember which magazine and which issue this was in? I would love to make one like this.
