Beaded Rope Jewelry DIY

When I was a kid I did Peyote beadwork with seed beads on little wooden dowels and then turned them into keychains for my dad.  Props to my dad for always pretending like each new keychain was his favorite!  When I started wearing glasses I gave up using seed beads because it was just too difficult.  Recently I ran into a magnifying lamp called the Lightview Pro XL and it changed my life.  I challenged myself to learn a different way to bead around rope and this is what I found.  It's a blast and takes so much less time than traditional Peyote beadwork.  Check out the video to see how I made these jewelry pieces and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
Long and short for necklaces and bracelets
Love the mix or bright colors and metallic gold beads!

Watch how to make them here!
Try different sizes of seed beads for variation like the bracelet on the right!
Pretty sure I'm done with my Christmas list now!
