Beaded Bead - Peyote - Pt 1
Just one of the many patterns and styles. This bead is very easy, but looks fantastic because of the different colors used. You can do it in a solid color also.
Again this is done in Delica beads. I have used #310 black, 105 dark red, and 40 copper here.
Keep tension medium.
Step 1 Begin with string 5 black and tying in a circle. Go through 1st bead strung.
Step 2 Add 1 copper bead, go through next black bead, add 1 copper, repeat around. When you add
last copper bead and go through black bead, also go through the first copper bead added to
jump up to the next round.
Step 3 Add 2 copper beads and go through next copper bead, repeat around. When you add the last
2 copper beads, come up through 1 copper bead added in this round.
Step 4 Add 1 copper bead, go through next bead, add 1 red bead, go through next, add 1 copper, repeat around. When you add the last red, go through the copper bead, and up through the 1st copper
bead added in this round.
Step 5 Add 1 red bead between each bead in this round. When this row is complete, come up through
first red bead added in this round
Step 6 Add 1 black bead - pass through 1 red bead, add 2 reds and pass through 1 red, add 1 black bead and pass through red, repeat around
