Beaded Bead - Peyote - Part 4

We now have two halves of equal size. What we do next depends on the size of the bead
we're covering. One half of the bead needs one more row than the other so the the peyote
stitch lines up and all we do is 'zip' the two sides together.
I've chosen a slightly larger bead to cover - again about 3/4 ". I've added 4 more peyote rows on one half and 5 more rows on the other half. See how the peyote stitch lines up in Pic 3. To zip them together, you just match up your beads on each half like zipper teeth and pass the needle
back and forth from one side to the other, closing up the zipper.
I find hold the whole thing together with a tooth pick works good.
After you zip the two
sides together, work in your thread ends and you are finished.
