Video Beading Tutorial: Techniques – Peyote Spiral

Video Beading Tutorial: Techniques – Peyote Spiral


In this video tutorial I demonstrate Peyote Spiral stitch. Making a beaded rope is one of the best ways to get to know a stitch and is a favourite for beginners and experienced beadworkers alike. Beginners get to practice and make easy, rope bracelets or extend them for necklaces, and experienced beadworkers use ropes to show off beautiful, beaded pendants. Peyote Spiral is very relaxing once you get through the first couple of rounds and fall into a rhythm of picking up the sequence of beads. And, just as with the Spiral Staircase, not only is it quite addictive, but once you’ve had a go at this you will be reaching for your stash to experiment with colour combinations and different sizes and shapes of beads, and even varying the numbers that you pick up, which will radically alter the look of the spiral.

In this video I’m wearing:

  • Morgan Le Fay necklace in the Golden Shadow/Crystal Copper colourway. I teach the Morgan Le Fay necklace as a 2-day workshop, and Morgan Le Fay Kits are also available in Crystal CAL/Padparadscha, Golden Shadow/Crystal Copper, Jet/Light Siam, Antique Pink/Amethyst. They’re not in the shop yet, but they will be available soon. Email me for further information.
