Free Form Peyote Lariat, NCTeddyBearLady

Image Description
This piece has been unfinished in a drawer for better than a year. I taught a class in free form peyote and used the focal cabochon to demonstrate technique. Once the class was over, I had a peyote encased cabochon. I wasn't in the mood to do something with it at that time. Neither was I willing to take apart the piece, so I stuck it in a drawer. Periodically I have taken it out and looked at it but the creative juices just weren't flowing. Recently, I stumbled on the piece again and decided to finish it. I took me about a week but I am extremely pleased with the end result.

The 18", necklace is an asymmetrical piece closed with a button hole and faceted, frosted Czech glass cathedral bead. The peyote was done in a mix of Japanese delicas, Matsuno triangles and Czech glass seed beads. One side of the neck strap is a mix of seed beads, delicas and Czech glass beads and tear drops in two sizes.

In addition to personal checks and US Postal Money orders, I accept PayPal. Shipments paid for by check are held until the check clears.

I do not pad my shipping charges but do pass actual costs on to you, the buyer. ArtFire requires that I pick a number for shipping so I picked the least expensive, slow-boat-to-China rate offered by the United States Postal Service. Secondary shipping charges depend on what else you are purchasing. If you are purchasing more than one item at a time from my studio, please e-mail for shipping charges. If you wish to choose a shipping method other than the USPS to a US address, the cost is more. That said, U.S. or Canadian purchasers may choose the U.S. Postal System, UPS or Fed Ex. but please request a shipping quote before making a purchase.

International purchasers may only use U.S. Global Priority Mail. Costs for Global Priority shipments vary by destination and package weight. Please contact me for a shipping quote before making a purchase. I will combine shipping upon request.

Insurance is optional but I accept no responsibility for damage to uninsured shipments.
