Once I got the slightly irregular piece beaded, I needed to figure out how I was going to make it into a necklace. I didn't want to continue the peyote up into a rope-like necklace so I ended it and auditioned several ideas.

What to do next?.......
I put it aside, left it all day, and at the last minute decided it had enough beads and need something softer.
