Much cooler today and a clearer bead mat!  I have recovered all of the Swarovski crystals and pearls from the 'Snow Queen' necklace and have added in some fresh new Miyuki Delica Beads, Swarovski crystals and seed beads to the pile for inspiration.  Over the last year or so I have created several designs using the Peyote triangle.  I think it's time I stepped away from them and challenged myself to do something new and I'm thinking perhaps squares...

Having discussed the problem of the 'flat' peyote square with my two mathmatically minded sons it would seem there is a certain 'size' where it will be achievable, though it would probably require different bead sizes - however that size is probably not realistically beadable!

So whilst I try to discover the secret of a flat peyote square, I think the best place to start is to have some fun with the 'warped' variety of squares.
