I’ve worked primarily in Peyote stitch for the past few years because it lends itself so well to geometric beadwork.  The beads sit nicely stacked like little bricks and it creates a fairly stiff and supportive structure akin to the feeling of upholstery fabric opposed to the fluidity and drape of a lightweight gossamer.  But I enjoy other stitches as well. The Herringbone stitch is wonderful for creating tubes and ropes.  Right Angle Weave (a.k.a. RAW) can produce either a lace-like or densely woven stitch depending on the beads one chooses to use.  I’m presently in the experimental stage of a new project that will consist of large beaded links.  I’ve chosen size 11 and 8 seed beads,  fire polished and Swarovski crystals in a palette of blues, greens, bronze, and gunmetal that will go well with several garments in my wardrobe!
