During vacation I played with shapes. I've still got to string some of these into a necklace.
Next up, I'm working on stitching a band of peyote to a metal cuff lined with leather. I've never done this before and am a little worried about the execution. Last night I glued the leather to the cuff (which I also made from a piece of brass) and stitched the peyote band to a piece of Lacey's Stiff Stuff. Today I'm hoping to join the two pieces in a fashion that looks moderately professional. I checked the web for directions and was horrified to find many said to glue the beadwork directly to the metal band. Using glue (I used that E-6000 stuff and hate the smell) for the leather or ultrasuede backing is bad enough, but I could not bring myself to smear glue all over my sweet little Delica band.
Do you know a great way to attach a peyote (I know the above is loom woven) strip to a metal cuff? I read that there should be something in between the beads and the metal. Give me a little advice if you have some experience with this.
