CRAW          Peyote

Skill Level: intermediate    
Technique: CRAW Peyote      DCRAW      DPRAW

Weave a collection of droplets into this stunning necklace! The teardrop decorative motif represents the chemical water; a source of refreshment, a path to cleanliness, and an essential compound for all life as we know it. Once considered to be one of the four fundamental elements (alongside fire, air, and earth), we now know that a water molecule is a simple arrangement of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Its chemical structure, H2O, is instantly recognizable to anyone no matter their background in chemistry.

 In this piece, several droplet elements come together from a diverse collection of structures and forms. You'll stitch several droplet elements with curves of cubic right-angle weave (CRAW), and vary the lengths of these curves for several sizes of these elements. You'll bezel flat back crystals using double prismatic right-angle weave (DPRAW) for small, delicate matching components. Additional DPRAW-bezeled chatons join the necklace, and you'll decorate one of these with bicone crystals for the center focal. Finally, you'll complete the necklace with teardrop-shaped Swarovski crystals. All these components have potential for further variations, and you can explore mixing and matching them for earrings, bracelets, and more.
