my newest creation.

The starfish measures about 3 and ½ inches (about 9 centimeters).

Peyote and brick stitched using matte delicas, seed beads and drop beads.

This is amazing I have never seen anything like it.  Will you be publishing this? I would love to have a pattern for this at first look I thought it was knitted, but now I see it is peyote. You did a wonderful job designing and making this peice.

Thank you very much!

I don't have a pattern on paper, just in my head. I made it up as I worked. It probably wouldn't be too hard to figure out though.

(as long as you don't make a bunch and try to compete with me

Basically, the different sized beads used create the shape of the piece.The detailing on the top is "freeform" brick stitch.

Thanks again,

Thanks Janet! I think the matte sandy colored beads add to the effect.

So organic looking. It looks like a real star fish with the texture from the beads. A real art piece. Wow!

Do you have a pattern for sale of the beaded starfish?

Hi Molly,

   So sorry; I do not. (I made it up as I worked; freeform.)

I did find a nice starfish pattern here on Beading Daily though:

Hope that helps!
