Bead Crochet Rope With Enhancer.

Bead crochet rope with a peyote slide enhancer.  About 4 years ago, at the Tucson Bead Show I purchased a pendant slider kit from Nanette Young-Greiner (Scorpio Beads) and Shirley Cook (Jumping Jack Glass), who collaborate on glass flower and leaf designs to create their kits.  Their lampwork beads and color combinations are phenomenal.  I first saw the peyote/slider technique in Bead and Button's October, 2007 issue where Veronique Landis used silver crimp tube beads to peyote stitch a background for her wirework, flowers and leaves.  After reading Veronique's instructions, I did make one using my polymer clay leaves and Czech glass beads, but this one; this one is my all time favorite.

As always Marlene, this is amazing. Until a while back I had never heard of a slider. Now Paulette Walther at Kazuri has the Samunnat ladies making some and sliders have become VERY significant! This one is so dainty. Love seeing your ceaseless creativity! Wendy
