Peyote Stitch: Basic Techniques, Advanced Results

Posted on: July 5, 2011

Stitch Workshop

From Bead & Button magazine

If you are a beader and work with any kind of stitch, add peyote to your skillset with this great book!  It shows you even and odd peyote, circular, tubular and how to make a beaded bezel to frame a cabochon.  I was amazed at the multitude of designs you can accomplish with just this one stitch and it’s easy variations.  Of course, you can design hundreds of types of beaded beads, but you can also create ruffles. Twists and turns and waves make peyote stitch almost endless in its possibilities!

The most creative design shows you how to work peyote around a wavy, “bendy” straw!  How unusual is that!  But the result is simply stunning. Feather weight, with a set of stones forming a dripping pendant, this will take your breath away!  The boldest design is an eye-catching Jewel-Box Bracelet. This creates beaded bezels around glittering Swarovski crystals.  A series of these around your wrist and it will look like a million!  I also loved the designs that show you how to make open beaded rings.  These can be dimensional chain-links, or open texture links in your design!

With the unending colors and finishes of seed beads, the designs in this book could keep you busy for years to come!  If you make any design from one of the projects in this book, leave a comment and let us know! If you have a picture on line, we’d love to see it!  Follow my blog to read about other jewelry project books and jewelry making!
