Preface

Interest in beadweaving is on the rise, and this is the first book in quite a while devoted specifically to the most integral technique-peyote stitch. In the “Peyote Basics” chapter, beaders will learn the basics of creating flat peyote bands, then advance to circular and tubular variations, eventually learning to fashion 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 Sherri Serafini, demonstrates a range of styles in 15 stylish jewelry projects.
