These are the beadweaving pieces I made. The rainbow, white and gold bracelet is a St. Petersburg chain stitch. The white and crystal bracelet is a Flat Spiral stitch. Check out the close-ups. The toggle on the white piece was handcrafted. I like finding beaded bezel designs and using them as toggles. You do have to add a few coats of Future Floor Polish to help make it stiff. The toggle bar was peyoted and zipped closed. I added a headpin to the center with a crystal as each end. Use pliers to bend and flatten ends or use needle nose plies to make a loop on each end. Use your imagination.
