Peyote Stitch Pendant - Jewellery Making Tutorial

Designed by: Marta Draganek

Rating:

Marta Draganek has prepared a tutorial in which she will teach you Peyote Stitch. This tutorial is an introduction to larger projects using Peyote Stitch. We will prepare a delicate pendant in a minimalist style. Thanks to the detailed, step by step instructions and large number of photos, even beginners who have never had anything to do with beading before can sucsessfully try it. Let's Stitch!

Materials needed:

  • Toho Round beads - Size 11/0 in three colors - It is very important that they are beads from this manufacturer, as they are of equal size. If the individual elements differ slightly in size, the pendant may wave
  • Beading Thread - One-G or monofilament thread - white threads or a colorless monofilament will work well with bright beads
  • Needle  - for beads - thin enough to go through a single bead several times. I use a size 12 needle
  • Chain - stainless steel with small links 1.8 × 2.2mm. The length depends on your preferences - I will use 2 sections with a length of about 20 cm
  • Jump Rings -  open 6mm in the color of oxidized silver - for mounting the fastener
  • Lobster Clasp - classic 10mm, also in the color of oxidized silver
  • Pliers

Remember that the course is mainly about learning the technique and you can make your peyote pendant in a completely different color!
We will make the pendant according to the diagram below. For people who are skilled in the peyote stitch, the diagram of the pendant will certainly be enough to make the pendant. I marked the first row of beads with a zigzag. If you've never dealt with peyote stitch, follow the photos. There are tons of them and exactly, bead by bead, they show you how to handle this project.

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 


Step 1

We start by threading 3 dark pink, 7 light pink and 3 dark pink beads on a 1.5 m long thread [ 3 CR , 7 JR , 3 CR ].

Step 1

Step 2

We turn the needle and weave every second bead in the following sequence: [ CR , 2 JR , T , 2 JR , CR ]. I marked the beads added in a given row with dots.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 3

Since this is an odd peyote stitch (odd number of beads in a row), we will need to do something like a "twist" before adding the last deep pink bead. Instead of adding the last bead right away, we pass the needle through the two dark pink beads from the first row.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 4

Now we can add the last dark pink bead from the second row sequence. We stick the needle down diagonally through two dark pink beads in the first row.

Step 1

Step 5

Go back - stick the needle from the bottom of the adjacent light pink bead from the second row and two dark pink beads from the first row.

Step 1

Step 6

We stick the needle from above into a dark pink bead from the second row.

Step 1

Step 7

In the third row, between the second row beads we add the following Toho sequence [ 2 JR , 2 T , 2 JR ]

Step 1

Step 8

In the fourth row we add the sequence of beads [ 2 JR , 3 T , 2 JR ].

Step 1

Step 9

As in row 2, we need to do a twist before adding the last Toho in the sequence.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 10

In the fifth row we weave beads between those from the previous row according to diagram [ JR , 4T , JR ]

Step 1

Step 11

The sixth row is the beginning of one of the two upper corners of the pendant. We only add three beads [ JR , 2 T ] and turn back

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 12

In the seventh row we weave [ 2 T ] between the beads in the sixth row .

Step 1

Step 13

In the eighth row, add [ 2 T ] between the beads from the seventh row and turn again through the beads from the previous rows.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 14

We weave 1 x [ T ].

Step 1

Step 15

We weave the last bead from this corner of the pendant, ie 1 x [ T ].

Step 1

Step 16

Go with the needle to the second upper corner of the pendant.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 17

Rows 11-15 are the mirror image of rows 6-10. So we start by weaving the following Toho beads: [ 2 T , JR ]. At the end of the row we have to turn back.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 18

In the twelfth row we weave [ 2 T ] and turn back again.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 19

Add [ 2 T ] and go back.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 20

Add one bead [ T ].

Step 1

Step 21

We weave the last bead in color [ T ].

Step 1

Step 22

The next step is to make the bottom corner of the pendant, so we need to get the needle back to the first row of beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 23

Rows 16-21 are the bottom corner of the pendant. We weave the following sequence [ 2 CR , 2 JR , 2 CR ] between the beads of the first row and turn them back.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 24

In the seventeenth row we weave the sequence [ 2 CR , JR , 2 CR ] and go back again.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 25

The eighteenth row is [ 4 CR ].

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 26

In the nineteenth row we add [ 3 CR ], we turn again.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 27

The twentieth row is [ 2 CR ] and turn.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 28

Row twenty-first is the last bead [ CR ].

Step 1

Step 29

The pendant is ready. We return with the needle to the upper left corner to hook the chain.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 30

The length of the chain will of course depend on your preferences. Mine is about 20cm. We sew it onto the ring to the corner bead. An alternative solution is to attach the chain with a small assembly ring.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 31

Go to the second corner and sew on the second part of the chain.

Step 1

Step 32

To hide the protruding ends of the thread, pass the needle through the successive beads of the pendant until the thread becomes too short to continue. Cut off its excess.

Step 1

Step 33

All that's left now is to attach the clasp. Bend the assembly ring with flat pliers and attach the carabiner. At the other end of the chain, attach the ring itself.

Step 1

Step 34

This is what the finished necklace looks like.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 35

Peyote stitch can be used to create larger forms. Small geometric elements can be combined into impressive pendants, necklaces, earrings or rings.

I am sure that you will also create a lot of amazing designs with the peyote stitch
