that's cool man yeah the good thing about beads in your hair is that they can be functional as well which is always a plus. I love making peyote stitches I have them in my hair the very first one that I finished fell out because I didn't have the technique down I guess I got it pretty much figured out now though cus they've been staying in my hair lately. I think I'm going to start giving them away as gifts to some of the peeps on the forum once I get off my ass and start making them.
I only have 2 treasures in my dreadies, I used brown thread and simply sewed a metal necklace pendant into my 2 favorite dreads. But as time goes on I really want to wrap a couple of them. What are peyote sticks
I've just started creating my own dreadlock coils.
They come in a variety of coloured wires with different beads at the bottom.

I have never dyed my hair or anything, and I don't plan on it.. so its nice to decorate the crown of glory from time to time. I go through different phases where I tie all kinds of beads rocks shells and rings into my hair, but then sometimes I just want to see them in all their natural glory. I was wearing a $5000 ring in my hair once and didn't even know it!! I really love peyote stitches.. especially to cover and fix crazy loops. small artificial flowers and ribbons look really pretty when tied into dreads too!
