Supposed to be a beaded box, a tad wonky. If I ever try it again, I think I can fix that.

That looks like something very minor that you won't have trouble fixing.  I think it's absolutely delightful, TC.  It would make a wonderful keepsake box.Smile

I have never had the skill with peyote to try a beaded box........but I truly drool over them. I think your beaded box is marvelous and I am seriously envious. I've read the directions and know that I'd "explode" and you guys would all see the mushroom cloud from where ever you are.

Congrats on a very nice piece of work, hope you will keep something special in it. Donna

I'd say...it' s an unbelievable surprise!!! Have ever thought about making a house with edges and corners like this (though it is a box in fact), but have never made it... Anyway, congrats on your new item, every pieces of your work is exquisite!

Caroline - I have thought many times about making an actual building. But I want a chimney and window boxes and shutters and all sorts of things. Could be a long, long time before it ever comes to fruition. If you make one, I'd love to see it.

tcwhit, when I saw this beaded box, the thing that jump into my mind firstly is the traditional Beijing courtyard - the house that many of our Chinese's life-long dream! It remind me of the house immediately! Hope you can make your actual building come to fruition as you wish! It is very lucky that you can design and build your house by your own, it would be a fantastic experience I am sure! I would try to make one like that once I know how to make them with beads perfectly! Looking forward for your next beading item, well, guess it would spend another several weeks to see it! well, It worth anticipating I am sure!
