Peyote Stitch is a versatile beading technique. You can create shapes and patterns that will result in wonderful designs of beaded jewelry with Peyote Stitch. Here is a basic pattern for a petal created by Assza Beading Arts using Peyote Stitch. Use the following seed beads so you can follow the steps.
|1. Pick up 5pcs Green, 7pcs Ecru and 4pcs Silver. Skip the last 3pcs seed beads and go back to the first silver bead.|
|2. Repeat Peyote stitch, picking up 1 bead and skipping a bead. Repeat 4 times with Ecru and then 2 times with Green.|
|3. Go through the next seed bead. Do Peyote with White and then repeat 4 times with Ecru then go back to the last Ecru|
|4. Repeat 4 times with Ecru then once with White and then go back to the last White you just added.|
|5. Do Peyote with White and then repeat 2 times with Ecru. Now, pick up 4 Silver, skip the last 3 Silver and then go back to the first Silver|
|6. Do Peyote with each seed bead in the following order: Ecru, Silver and White and then go back through the last White you just added.|
|7. Do Peyote with Silver 2 times and then go back to the last Silver you just added.|
|8. Do Peyote with 1 Silver and the go through the next 7 seed beads and then come out at the very bottom bead of your beadwork.|
9 -14. Now, repeat steps 1-8 for the other side.
|15. Let’s start to embellish your petal. Weave your way up to the side of the beadwork. Pick up 2 Silver, 8 Blue then 1 Silver and go through and back up the Silver on the ear-top. Then pass through the 2 seed beads you just added.
Pick up 6 Blue and 1 Silver and go through and back up the Silver ear-side and the 2 see beads you just added.
Continue adding the blue edge of the petal. Repeat in this manner of weaving with 10 Blue and 1 Silver, then 6 Blue and 1 Silver and lastly, 7 Blue and 2 Silver.
|16. For the final embellishments, weave your up to the bead as shown in the diagram. Pick up 2 Green and 3 White and go through and back up the signed Ecru and pass back through beads you just added.
Pick up 2 Green and 4 White then go through the signed 2 Ecru and pass back through the beads you just added.
Pick up 2 Green and 3 White then go through the signed Ecru and pass back through the beads you just added. Now, you can secure your thread.
