Zig Zag Bracelet

Diagonal peyote stitch.
Green freshwater pearls, Delicas, the smallest size, DB29.
I have been studying bead stitching for the past few weeks.

I went down to the "Bead Town" in Tokyo, located in Asakusabashi, which is near the "Electric Town" where all the tourists go and Japanese go to buy anything electric. Asakusabashi is just one more stop on the train. There are over 40 shops selling all kinds of beads and semi-precious stones, plastic beads, anything. I went to Miyuki's shop, Bead Factory, and became a member, getting the right to buy beads at 50% off!! All the beads are in big jars and are sold in 8 gram portions.
