Description

My love for hardware is not new, but using a finding that may be better suited for leather with a woven piece is! Shanna actually suggested that this Z hook finding by Tierra Cast would be fun for this Zebra pattern I was playing around with! I use two to attach my even count peyote strips into a bracelet, but you could adjust the length of the strips and use three! Click here to download the PDF of this pattern.

Karla Schafer, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:

This project uses an even count peyote stitch, "zipping" technique and pattern reading, if you are not familiar with these, please watch the following videos:

  1. I made the first strip according to the pattern's length which should work out to be about 3.7" in length, in flat even count peyote.
  2. After working that strip, you should attach it to the closed link of the Z hook, by slipping it through and using the "zipping" technique to create the loop, I folded over about 10 rows. You will be able to "pick up" a bead within the body of the work just like you are zipping to ends.
  3. Using a pair of pliers, carefully close the other side of the hook, so that it can be used to connect the other peyote strip.
  4. Attach the fixed end of the other Z hook onto the other end of the strip, "zipping" it as above, about 10 rows.
  5. Work a second strip and I suggest doing the full length of the pattern as above, I shortened mine, but wish I would have made it the full length and just made my last "loop" larger so that it would be easier to slide the hook in and out.
  6. Add the strip to the end of the Z hook already attached first, using about 10 rows, this will be the permanent loop.
  7. Measure your piece so that you can see how long it is and judge the amount you have to fold over, I originally folded over about 15 rows, but a few more rows will make the hook slide in and out easier and you can make adjustments on the length. If it is too, excessive, you can simple remove some rows!
  8. Be sure to run your thread back through your work and tie in a couple of half hitch knots!
