This is the stitch! It is the most versatile stitch and the simplest. This is the
basis for almost everything: bead sculpture, earrings, purses, netting, etc. Once you know the
Peyote Stitch you have the foundation to bead weave anything! You can complete this bracelet on
your own with my step-by-step fully-illustrated instructions and diagrams (see sample below).
This is the first bead-weaving stitch I learned; where it all began
for me and from where everything grew. This particular design has its origins in my teenage years
in high school when the Hippie and Love Bead thing was in full bloom, before bead
sculpture, when the only stitch that existed was the flat peyote and peyote barrel stitch.
I have been teaching this particular project with these instructions
for many years now with great success! All my students who take this class tell me they are the
best and easiest to follow and are always very happy with their creation and all the compliments
