Beading Q And A: Beading Patterns (8/15/2011)
I need help finding a peyote seashell or other beach related bead patterns?
I am looking for a pattern for a peyote-stitch seashell and/or other beach-related item(s), about 1-3 inches in diameter. Do you know where to find one?
I would definitely check bead-patterns.com – they have the most bead patterns of any web site.
How do you make a beaded ball (peyote stitch)?
I want to make a beaded human but I am stuck on how to do the head (ball)… Can anyone give me instructions to make a beaded peyote stitch ball and/or a website that gives instructions to make a beaded person?
This is a rather drawn out technique, so a play by play here would be tedious. If you know the basics of peyote, begin with a band around the center of a bead or ball in the size you need and use tubular peyote decreasing as needed to conform to your base. I know this is oversimplified, but if you’re comfortable with peyote, it’s actually quite easy to cover a round form.
Here is a YouTube video that should help you:

Good luck and happy beading!
