Peyote Stitch Bead Patterns (3/30/2015)

2015 March 30

Here are some great tutorials and patterns for Peyote Stitch. I think Peyote Stitch is a favorite for so many beaders, which is why there are so many patterns, free and pay. While the peyote start is sometimes hard, once you get going, it’s a fun easy stitch. Enjoy!

Most of us think of leopard or zebra print when we think of animal-themed jewelry, but that’s not always the case. Animal-themed jewelry can pay tribute to any animal, including a beloved pet. Maybe you want to create a pair of earrings that look like your cat. Or maybe you just want to rock an awesome safari-style cuff. No matter what your DIY plans, check out these animal-themed jewelry tutorials from some of our awesome Craftsy designers

Peyote-stitched Fork Tube Sat, 31 Jan 2009 09:40:00 -0800

The fact that I haven’t tackled the issue of putting my beaded motorcycle together has been bothering me. So, the other day, I began working on the fork tube which will eventually link the motorcycle’s front wheel to the front of the beaded frame. The tube consists of two pieces of hardware (tension pins) that I beaded using the tubular peyote-stitch technique. Nothing is holding the two pins together except for the sleeve of beads which I have created.

Using Beads and Geometry to Decorate Eggs Sun, 01 May 2011 19:13:51 -0700

Seed beads are close to my heart, they’re one of the first crafty things I ever got into.  They’re incredibly versatile, and in this case pretty festive, too.  They work well with math, a lot of common beadwork stitches are influenced by fractal-like increases and, in this case, I’m working with the relationship between hexagons and circles.  (Is there a special term for that relationship mathies?  I couldn’t find anything easily with google!)  Don’t let the tiny beads intimidate you.  Start with small eggs and work up to larger projects.  I make up my patterns as I go, but you could also make up a chart and plan that in advance.

Peyote stitch is another one of those beadweaving stitches you see everywhere. It’s got a fancy name and seems kinda daunting. The good news? It’s really, really simple. And once you get the concepts you can create all sorts of things, like tubes and flat circles and sculptural geometric shapes. This tutorial is for the most basic, flat, rectangular peyote stitch: but even with this stitch you can create all sorts of awesome designs. (Peyote: Advanced tutorial forthcoming).

Links to these pages are provided when a step calls for you to do them. Read through them first too.
