Peyote with a twist (not crochet)

Gerlinde Lenz created a new technique in which you can simulate a bead rope made with crochet. It is called Peyote with a twist.
I made this necklace in this great technique.
If you want to make this necklace yourself you use the free instructions I made. It is not a perfect pattern but it will give you an idea on how it is made. You need to have some experiance with this technique. You can find some instruction videos on You Yube on how to do Peyote with a twist. among otheres by Jill Wiseman.

Superduo Duets

Today a new bead is launched. It is not an new bead shape, but is is a older bead in a totally new appearance. The new Superduo Duet has 2 colours, which give a total new way of using them.
I had the chance to try them and here are my first ( and for sure not the last) results. design Akke Jonkhof
