I love Native American style carved animal fetish necklaces. I bought mine over 20 years ago on a trip through the South West. I'm pretty sure I bought it in New Mexico, possibly Arizona.
I was inspired to try and make my own when I recently bought some carved butterflies from Fire Mountain Gems (FMG). As you may know if you follow this blog, I don't do a lot of stringing projects. I don't think I'm particularly good at it, but like anything, I know that if I practiced more I would improve.
So, here's my practice.

If you've been following my blog for any time, you probably know that I like to take my beading and jewelry making to go. Mostly, that means to my kids baseball and softball games - but it also means to various parts of my house.
I'm always trying different ways to take my beading with me - from how I store my beads to the dishes I put them in when beading to the work surface.
This post is about my portable work surface, or beading tray. One that I made myself, of course.
