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.

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.
When I first started making my own jewelry, I was only stringing beads. Seed beads looked small and intricate and scary. Until I tried the beginning beadweaving class at my local store, and I was hooked. It does take patience and focus, but it is also relaxing. If you’ve put off beadweaving, don’t be afraid to try it.

If you are Chan Luu’s fan or like summery, Bohemian style jewellery you might like this tutorial showing how to make (very easily) wrap bracelets with glass seed beads in no time. To make bracelet flexible in size start by attaching the button on the beginning and then at the end of bracelet make couple of loops in between knots for different sizes.

I was asked to make some bracelets using seed beads, so instead of just coming up with one option, I came up with three! They’re all really easy to make, so are ideal for beginners. These bracelets look really good worn alone, or they can be made in similar colours and stacked together!
Kheops and Crescents and Chexx, Oh My!! How do we find the time to choose the new beads we want to work with and find patterns to use them? In some cases, I’ve simply had to stop buying new kinds of beads until I actually need them. How about you?

Although the bracelet design isn’t as intricate as the earrings, I think that they will go together well enough. It’s not something that I’d wear with an evening gown (as if I’d ever wear such a thing), but it will be a fun set to wear for every day.

We got a bunch of Rullas a while back, and a recent conversation got me thinking about what to do with them. After futzing around for a bit, I realized they could nestle together, kind of like Lincoln Logs, to make a cool pattern. I made a few bangles and wanted to share the instructions with you. These bracelets take only about 45 minutes to make, so whip up several and stack ’em up on your wrist!
It’s time again for my fantastic variety picks. Don’t always know what categories these fit in, or I find too many. Then, you get a hodge-podge of bead projects, tutorials and patterns. Enjoy!!

Tutor Sarah Burnett-Moore recently had to make a basic Peyote stitch bezel for a project so she decided to share the experience by creating this earring tutorial. For those of you who thought that life is too short for bead weaving, have a go at these great little ‘Bud’ stash-busters.

There are tons of materials that can help you achieve an on-trend boho look, but my absolute favorite component for creating boho pieces is the tiny but mighty seed bead! Whether your preferred stitch is peyote, brick stitch, ndebele (herringbone stitch), right angle weave, loom weaving, or bead embroidery, it’s easy to incorporate tons of colors and big, bold patterns into your boho themed designs.
