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?
