Description

Peyote stitch has been around for centuries and never goes out of style. It's used by American Indians in their head-dresses and clothing embellishments. Peyote is a great basic stitch to start with if you're new to bead weaving. It's very versatile and can be manipulated to make shapes used in bead sculpting. We will create this cuff using size 6/0 or 8/0 seed beads or 3mm cubes, 11/0 seed beads and a clasp of your choice. As you become more familiar with the stitch you may want to try using 11/0 delicas for your base.
