Here is an amulet bag I made as a gift for my daughter's 21st birthday (7 yrs ago). It was the first peyote stitched bag I had ever attempted and it seemed like a lot of work at the time...little did I know I would invest many hours of my life picking up tiny beads on the end of a needle and stitching them into place. What joy I've found in this simple, repetitive (meditative) and creative task of bead weaving.
The charms hanging from the bag's fringe are a dove, star, flower, heart and key symbolizing peace, brilliance, life, love and opportunity.
