Peyote Stitch Bangle

Project level-intermediate
Project list-
4mm round beads
11 seed beads Nymo,
 size D Thread Heaven(I didn't use it but its good to have)
Size 12 bead needles

I know I promised this last year but hey-its up now. I made only one so far since I have to go and buy more beads to finish the other one I started. Its really fun but it takes time to make. This bangle can be worn for any style of belly dance. I have directions directly from class. I think I confuse you more if I tried to say it.
