About:
This is a wooden vessel I designed. I call it the Vortex. I used a block of wood and with a drill, a sand bit and a vice to hold the drill, I got the desired shape. Then I hand sewed the beads on using an add/drop peyote stich. using color as my guide, not a pattern. I even beaded the indented top with a hole so the beads would lay flat. This took some thought. I finally figured out that by beading to the center as far as I could. By sticking a pencil in the hole and beading up until the beads were tight around the pencil-allowed me to push the beads inward after I tool the pencil out. One similar to this sold for 375.00. Others have sold for more or less depending on the size. This was my third attempt at beading wooden vessels. My mother won't give it back.
