Desert diamonds are naturally occurring crystalized stones found mostly in the desert of Saudi Arabia. They are not harvested, but "found" among the sand.
Desert Diamonds are prized because they are scratch resistant and hold their color well.
The beaded band would also make a great hatband or narrow belt band.
On the pattern pages, I have provided you with:
full-color, graph-style beading chart for the beaded band
color key with suggested Delica bead colors and bead counts
color photos of the finished headband
Peyote stitch word chart
Step-by-step finishing tutorial
Approximate Finished size:3/4 inches wide x 14.5 inches long fits a plastic headband 5/8 inches wide x 14.5 inches long (supplier listed in the tutorial)

Thanks for "bouncing in" to my little corner of the world. I promise, it will be worth the effort. My given name is Beth Rudy, but my native name is "Bouncing Wolf". This was inspired by my love of a certain orange and black Disney character, and my 5-year-old golden-lab of the same name -- Tigger. We both have a very hard time keeping our feet on the ground when we get excited.
And nothing excites me more than a new creative idea. Many times, my creative mind moves faster than my hands can ever keep up with.
Rest assured that all of my patterns have been fully tested by me! I don't use a bead fairy. Each pattern is shown with a photo of the finished piece that I have beaded from the pattern.
So, check back often for new patterns. When my creative muse strikes, watch out!!!
Thanks for shopping with me.
