Lots of new techniques

I've been trying some new techniques lately. This bracelet was made using two-drop peyote stitch, which is quite similar to regular peyote stitch, but you use two beads at a time (or one large bead) instead of one small bead at a time.




And this is the first time I ever attempted herringbone stitch. It's pretty simple once you get the hang of it, and I like the fish-scale look of it. I used antique seed beads I got when I was in Paris for this one. They're slightly irregular in size, but the uniformity of the beads doesn't seem to affect herringbone stitch as much as it does other stitches.
