How to create a peyote stitch ring? It is very easy to do. Today I will learn you how you can do a simple peyote stitch ring. Done within an hour.
Do make it very easy for you, I created a few patterns below you can use. The pattern on the left side are EVEN rows and the patterns on the right are UNEVEN rows. You use the same technique, just a little different in between 2 rows. If you want to create a pattern from the uneven rows, head over to step 2 and 3.
TIP: The patterns below are from the size of my finger/ring. For the correct size, just measure your finger and adjust the pattern if needed. Always add 1 cm to the measurement of your finger as the beads are 1mm thick. For sample: your finger is 6.2 cm around, add to at least 7cm of beads in a row.
- 2 colors Miyuki Delica beads
- Miyuki Delica 11/0 Galvanized Champagne Semi Matt (DB 1152)
- Miyuki Delica 11/0 Galvanized Raspberry (DB 0428)
- Miyuki thread or S-lon-AA
- Needle Tulip or different kind of thin needle.
Step 1: Pick a pattern. I choose the uneven peyote. Add a stopper bead to the thread, where you cut the yarn. Pick up the beads for row 1 and 2 like going up, down, up, down, up down etc.
Pick the next beads of row 3. Repeat the row until you have the row of the pattern like the sample below. Now you do the same with the next rows that are coming until you’re done. Go to step 4.
*Step 2: You’ll see that you ‘miss’ a bead which can hold a piece of thread. Follow the instruction below. Start at the arrow and follow the green line. After that follow the black line. You will meet inside the same bead as you started this instruction in.
*Step 3: Go on with row 4 and 5. At the end of 5 you’ll do the same as before. Follow the instruction pattern. Repeat this procress until you’re ring pattern is done like the sample below.
Step 4: When the pattern is done measure again just to be sure. Please remember that you need ‘2 uneven’ rows with beads. As you will fold the pattern into each other, the beads need to close the ring. If you did this, see the sample below of how to stitch the ring together. Use a zig zag pattern from top to bottom. Make it very loose and pull the cords once you’re done.
Step 5: Pull the cords towards each other and pull it tight. Now enter your needle from bottom to top on the opposite side. Once on top, go back a bit down through different beads. Cut the cord.
