Description

Maybe it is my love for the water or I am just feeling nautical... Anchors Away matey! I created this anchor design using the Beader's Canvas Software and originally designed it as a bracelet with a repeating pattern of anchors but decided it would make a great summer necklace and stitched up one anchor as a pendant! The silver plate chain just plays into my nautical theme.

Karla Schafer, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:

  1. View the Peyote Stitch Instructional Video for a how to on peyote stitch.
  2. Cut a 1yd piece of Fireline or longer, what ever you are comfortable working with, you may need to tie in.
  3. String on a stop bead. To string a stop bead, pick up a bead and pass needle and thread through the bead in the same direction so that the thread wraps around the bead.
  4. Pick up 20 seed beads and let them slide down the thread to the stop bead.
  5. Pick up one seed bead; skip the last bead strung and pass through the next bead, going back towards the stop bead.
  6. Continue to pick up one bead, skip a bead, and pass through the next bead until you reach the end of the row.
  7. Continue to pick up beads and pass through the beads that are jutting out from the previous row. You will be filling in the gaps with beads as you stitch.
  8. To turn at the end of each row, simply pick up a bead and pass through the bead you just stitched into place. You may have to hold on to your working thread to keep your tension so as not to allow the work to loosen up.
  9. Follow the pattern for the color changes, using an index card to help mark your rows.
  10. As mentioned if you need to add thread , be sure to secure your working thread by working it back through the stitches, half hitch knotting a couple of times. Add the thread in the same manner careful to end up where you stopped.
  11. Re-enforce the last two rows by tracing the thread back through a couple of times, to strength the ends as we will be adding a jump ring in between the stitches. Do the same for the beginning edge.
  12. Open a jump ring and gently push it in between the gaps about two beads in second row, see picture, repeat for the other side.
    Cut the chain according to length you desire, sample is 18" so I cut two 9" pieces and attached an end to each jump ring.
    Add a trigger clasp and another jump ring to the other ends using the 6mm jump rings to complete the piece.

Customer Reviews
Anchors Away Pendant Project
Thank you Karla Schafer. You gave a beginner a great way to use a Peyote pattern by giving me the PDF download, and great video on peyote stitch. Your keeping the project small allowed me to really understand and follow the pattern. I hope there will be another one of these soon and then I will hopefully be ready to use the Beader's Canvas Software to design things for Halloween.
