1.In order to learn the Peyote Stitch Technique, watch the Peyote Stitch Video.

2.The tubes are 8 beads wide and make them 6 rows long. You will need to make 7 tube beads.

3.To create a tube simply fold the tube in half and zip them together. The edges will fit together as a puzzle.

4.Tie your thread by using the tail thread and the working thread in a square knot. Work the thread ends back into the work and trim with the nipper tool.

5.After the tubes are complete, then simply string the bracelet as follows.

6.Cut the beading wire 4” greater than desired length.

7.String a seed bead, crimp and a seed bead, and run the wire through the loop of the bar and back through the seed beads and crimp.

8.Flat crimp using the chain nose pliers.

9.String a bicone, peyote tube, bicone, peyote tube, etc until you reach the end, ending in a bicone.

10.String a seed bead, crimp, 2 seed beads, the other half of the toggle and 2 seed beads.

This is a gorgeous bracelet but I am one of those people that needs visual directions as opposed to reading them. I can't grasp the directions as well as when I watch a video. I give the rating a 4 star because it's a stunning bracelet. Hopefully one day there will be a video to go with it so I can attempt this awe inspiring piece.

Peyote Bead Tubes Are So Easy!!
Because I have been following Karla''''s videos for a very long time, this was one of my very first attempts at beadweaving. It took me a couple of tries to make these bead tubes, but with the help of Auntie''''s Beads Videos I was able to master it!! Over the years I have made many projects with the bead tube, including this bracelet!

Questions and Answers

Q: How many packages of the 8/0 Seed beads are required for this bracelet?
Asked by: Nina Staiger - 8/22/2014
A: I believe it is one, so it has been a while since I made it, however since I didn't put 2 bags in the list it must be one. Karla
