Peyote stitches? Bump bracelet/stitch?

I saw this bracelet that was really pretty and they called it the bump bracelet. I wanna know how to make it. It is a type of peyote stitch. It is really pretty. This is what it looks like:

It is a free tutorial and after you follow it, then you should be able to alter it to match the picture.

Carol asks…

Where can I find graph paper for bead weaving in peyote stitch?

For off-loom weaving using delica and other small seed beads…

Susan asks…

I’m learning how to do a Peyote stitch with size 11 beads, but..?

The beads are dyed so as I’m working with them, the colour rubs off..

Do you have any tips for me as to how I can prevent this? I’ve thought of wearing gloves..

BeadGal answers:

The color is going to continue to rub off. Here is an article that has some suggestions for preventing this:

The rainbow one, not the buttons.

What’s the difference between brick and peyote?

BeadGal answers:

Both of those pony bead bracelets looks like they peyote stitch. Many patterns for pony beads are peyote stitch, so you can use regular peyote bead weaving patterns with pony beads, and also, many pony bead patterns can be used with regular seed beads.

Brick stitch looks a lot like peyote, but turned sideways. It is stitched in quite a different way. Brick Stitch is somewhat stiffer than peyote, it’s a good choice for earrings and it also handles irregular shapes somewhat better than peyote. You start brick stitch with a row of ladder stitch and from there forward you “attach” the next rows of beads by looping through the thread and going through the bead again. Here’s a quick tutorial: http://www.beaditbabe.com/brick.html
