Overview


With interest in beadweaving on the rise, Mastering Peyote Stitch provides a much-needed look into the most integral technique—peyote stitch. With 15 styles in all, beading geniuses will finally have an accessible, easy-to-understand guide to one of the fundamentals of beadweaving, brought to you courtesy of Beadwork Editor Melinda Barta.

In the “Peyote Basics” chapter, you will learn the basics of creating flat peyote bands, then advance to circular and tubular variations, eventually learning to fashion dimensional jewelry pieces. Once you've mastered the basics, Melinda dives into designing dimensional jewelry pieces. Additional chapters cover combining peyote with other popular beadweaving techniques (right-angle weave, herringbone, and bead embroidery) and creating unique edgings and embellishments for finished pieces. Melinda, together with Beadwork's Designers of the Year, including Jean Campbell, Lisa Kan, Carole Ohl, Melanie Potter, Jean Power, Cynthia Rutledge, and Sherry Serafini, demonstrates a range of styles in 15 beautiful jewelry projects.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Barta (editor, Beadwork magazine) explores the three variations of peyote stitch (flat, tubular, and circular) in this collection of patterns that showcase the versatility of this simple stitch. After a thorough introduction to the basics of beadwork, Barta provides an equally thorough introduction to each peyote stitch variation, along with projects that highlight the characteristics of the stitch. The projects include a variety of necklaces and bracelets ranging from simple, straightforward designs to statement pieces; many incorporate a variety of beads and semiprecious stones. VERDICT Beginners will appreciate the easy-to-follow stitch diagrams, while more experienced beadweavers will find the advanced techniques and finishing information useful.

    Great book!

    This is a great book, whether you're a beginner or an advanced beader! It covers a lot of different elements of beading, tho' focuses mostly on peyote. She is the magazine editor for Beadwork Magazine, and is a wonderful bead artist. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to expand their beading knowledge!
