For those whose peyote is loosey-goosey, I'll tell you right now, your bracelet won't look quite like these pictures. The key is tight, tight tension so that the fabric ripples in three dimensions instead of only two. It's not hard (says she who could quite easily blister her fingers with thread so tight it almost cuts), but if it's not your natural steady state, this is great practise for tension control. Although most of my students chose a single colour in each size, as you can see you can vary shades and finishes within a colour group, should you find yourself in the position of having sizeable collections with little to distinguish one from the other. The closure is a toggle and buttonhole that sort of mimics the look of the toggle, so that it looks like a pair of toggles, and is pretty secure. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY peyote stitch ability to bead firmly "zip" peyote edges together SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Less than an inch wide, or to suit Length to fit your wrist

I can neither imagine nor remember a time when I wasn't making things. I have tried almost every fiber art, and currently knit and spin my own yarn. I sew clothes and furnishings occasionally. I've dabbled in polyclay, lampwork and silver-smithing, but immerse myself in seed beading. I teach at a local bead store, as well at national shows from time to time. Patterns in my shop are by and large based on classes I have taught, so they've been tested on real people!
