Yes they are peyote stitch, Lisa. I find that they are a very flexible way of covering the ends and then I just top them with a bead and a wrapped loop.

Stitch zapper sounds interesting Tinker. Thanks Pru, I presume it's circular peyote, did someone in B&B do a tutorial on beaded end caps in the dim and distant past, I must have a look, they really finish it all off beautifully.

Omg you two! Stunning, both of them - and talk about lastminute.com we could have done so much drooling over them by now Smile

Lisa here's a link http://www.knottingways.co.uk/thread-zapper-138-p.asp this isn't the one I have, I use the one I bought for lost wax carving but it's the same idea

Love the shape of the leaf Lisa and the combination of the two metals look good.
