I joined Cath Thomas’ new group, Cellini Peyote Freaks, on Facebook and learned how to make her Bolas Canastas. I debated on sharing these photos of my first attempts. Then I remembered, we’re beaders and we can share mistakes along with successes. I need to re-stitch the bola (then finish the ends) because it’s too tight and pulling the 8º beads. But I’m happy with the other two play pieces and have ideas for them.
The piece on the right in each photo is the same one showing different angles. I squeezed the ends together (adding one more Delica in between). I’m still trying to decide what I want to put in the “pocket”.
