Sakura Beaded Vase
A pretty little beaded vase, made entirely with peyote stitch, was inspired by the Japanese Sakura festival each spring, as the cherry blossoms bloom in parks, streets, gardens, mountains.
The pattern in this vase mimics the Sakura print we see everywhere, on china plates, art, wallpaper, fabric. Try different colour backgrounds, pale blues or greens, cream, grey for different effects.
Please note the finished item will not hold water or flowers, it is purely ornamental.
The vase is 2 1/2 inches (6.5cm) high, x 1 1/2 inches (4cm) wide.
