WIP - Beading around a Geode Slice

I'm beading around one of the geode slices I bought in Florida. I started with a base string of
beads, 11/0's, long enough to go around the outer edge of the geode. I did about 4 rows in Peyote.
Then I fit the beaded strap around the out side of the geode and I'm starting to bead the reduction rows now. The reduction rows will be done on the front and back sides of the geode. It will not
be stitched to or glue to any backing. The masking tape helps to hold the strap in place while stitching the reduction rows. Just re-position as needed until your reduction rows are tight enough to work without it.
