"Wa" (Harmony)

Thanks to Suzanne Cooper for reminding me I had this.... I made it several years ago, by graphing a calligraphy done by my minister-- peyote stitch, 15/0 beads for the bag and fringe, 11/0, fire polished glass, bone and a "cinnabar" bead for the strap. That loop above the toggle is there because I got a knot in it, and I can't get it undone.... Looks almost planned, though.
Check out Suzanne's website: http://suzannecooper.com/ . Not only does she have a version of this character in a pattern that looks good in 11/0 beads (FREE!!), she has many other wonderful designs.

Very pretty, Kaytee. Yes, the knot does look like you meant it to be there.
