Spirit of Polynesia Peyote Bracelet

July 31, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Spirit of Polynesia” Peyote Bracelet

Those of you that know me will likely have heard me talk of my love of all things tiki and Polynesian. This design brings motifs often seen in the fabrics of authentic Hawaiian shirts, and in fact I even chose my colors to specifically match two of my own favorite shirts! In the class you’ll learn how to stitch peyote from a graph and word chart and how to execute the odd-count turn. A picot edging finishes it off.

Please note that if you would like the exact colors used in our sample, we highly recommend that you request them as soon as possible, as sometimes these colors do sell out before class day. Otherwise, we encourage you to shop the over 550 colors we currently carry and come up with a unique combination all your own!

Designed by Laura


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Odd-count peyote

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 1
If you’ve taken a few beginner classes, are starting to get comfortable with the language of beading and feel ready for the next step, this is the perfect class for you. This project will be just a little more complex than the beginner pieces, but still great for new beaders.
