A template for peyote stitch beads
Once in a while we all end up with a need wo make a peyote stitch bead. And here is a great help for al beaders - a template from Bead&Button magasine. Using this template you can create your own patterns, using different colors and bead sizes.
To start with, make a right-angle weave with a double needle, that fits the equator of your inner bead. I usually use any big sige plastic acrylic beads that cost penny and are easy to be found in any accessories shop. Now working with each needle on it's own side, fll the pattern with peyote stitch using the template. And here is what you can get. These are all the photos from the B&B site
