I’ve been obsessively making these 3D peyote stitch triangle earrings for a few weeks now. I’m in love with the statement they make and the endless color combinations.

I also tried my hand at turning one into a large pendant that can fit through a chain around your neck and gifted it to my mum for Mother’s Day. I think she liked it and it’s end result makes me want to try my hand at another one.

Should I list some of these in my shop? Would you buy a pair?

I love making these bottle openers for wedding gifts. They are really perfect–something most people need, but also not on a registry and unique to me. You aren’t getting more than one peyote beaded bottle opener at your shower, are you?

I completed this matte bead one back in early August, as a gift to a former colleague and friend who had been married in recent weeks. I never did get final snaps of the finished product, but I think she was pleased with the gift and I hope she and her husband have popped a few cool ones with it.

I really love mixing it up–sometimes making matte bead ones and other times all shiny, metallic beads like this one I made the previous summer for another friend getting married.

What are your go to small, handmade gifts?
