Peyote stitch dates back to ancient Egypt, evidenced by artifacts found in King Tutankhamun’s tomb. Also in North America, Native Americans, namely the Kiowa and Comanche tribes, use the stitch giving it its name.
This off-loom beading technique creates both flat bands and structural shapes. In this class, learn flat, odd-count peyote to create a flat and fluid bracelet. All it takes is Fireline thread, a beading needle and delica seed beads. By using the same basic thread path, the beads align with one another. Once the band is woven, you will learn how to attach it to a clasp.
Please bring a bead mat, tape measure, scissors and magnification if you require it for close work. No jewelry crafting experience required. Material fee paid directly to the instructor.
