|Rainbow daisy-chain fringed choker||
Peyote stitch gives the most wonderfully smooth, flexible texture to this individual choker.|
Peyote stitch is a Native American beedwork technique which does not use a loom, it is instead all handwoven. This is more time consuming than loom work, but the results are finer and stronger. For more information on peyote stitch please click here
