Peyote Stitch Bead Patterns (8/14/2015)

2015 August 14

Back to one of the most loved stitches, Peyote Stitch. You can’t be a beader without doing at least some Peyote Stitch, if not a lot of it. There are wonderful flat peyote cuffs, making gorgeous pictures of animals, flowers, abstracts or famous works of arts. You can try tubular peyote stitch, circular peyote stitch, Cellini spiral, with is a variation of tubular peyote, and even Russian Leaf stitch.

If you’ve perused beading patterns at all, it’s likely you’ve come across peyote stitch. Peyote stitch is one of the most useful seed bead techniques out there. Once you learn, you can create practically any peyote stitch bead pattern, whether it’s a patterned cuff, a fun shape like a butterfly, or a tubular necklace.

Peyote Stitch Beaded Sleeves Tutorial Mon, 01 Jun 2015 21:46:00 -0700

I have been obsessed by these little sleeves for the past month or so. Ordering beads matching the Kumihimo Bracelets with Long Magatamas & C-Lon Tex 400, trying different bead sleeve designs, wearing them constantly to test them and getting comments from friends and at large. So here is the next installment on my quest.

This tutorial uses four different sizes of beads and what is basically a circular peyote stitch (or a netted stitch, if you prefer).  A quick run down of your supplies in relation to a 4mm round as the largest in the bead: 4 4mm round spacer beads, 8 3mm spacer beads (in this a size 8/0 seed bead), 4 size 10/0 or 11/0 seed beads, and some size 11/0 seed beads all in complementary colors (plus the requisite needle, thread, and beeswax).

There are many variations – even-count, odd-count, circular, tubular, and 1-, 2- and 3-drop variations of each of these. We are going to start with even-count 1-drop peyote. I will show you how to get started with this stitch, and how you could make a flat strip of peyote-stitch beadwork. Peyote stitch looks just like a brick wall made from beads.

To get the delightful wavy appearance, it is all about the bead selection and bead sizes. The color and type of bead will either make or break your bracelet. I started with 8 beads in the first row, then using the peyote stitch, I finished the second row.  Changing beads every two rows, graduating the bead size up, then down, then up again.  Doing this will give you the great wavy look to the bracelet.

2-Drop Peyote Stitch Beading Tutorial Sat, 08 Aug 2015 02:00:00 -0700

2-Drop Peyote Stitch beading technique is a variation of Peyote Stitch. The difference with 2-Drop Peyote Stitch is that instead of picking up 1 bead, 2-drop means you need to pick up 2 beads at a time. 2-Drop Peyote Stitch may seem simple, but using this beading technique lessens the time of building up your beadwork or creating your beaded project. The technique is also great for making patterns for bracelets!
