August 2008 Beaded Peyote Tie Pendant Pattern

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month's project is a Peyote beaded tie pendant made with Japanese glass seed bead using the odd count peyote stitch. Great as a fashion accessory or as a jewelry gift.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Peyote Tie Pendant :

What you need:

1)    Glass seed beads size 11/0 (gray and black)
2)    Beading string (0.25mm)

Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.

Step 1:
  • If it's your first try on odd count peyote, see the basic tutorial first.
  • Cut a piece of beading string around 1/2 meter long.

    Start beading from the middle of the graph.
    This is a horizontal odd count peyote graph.
  • See the pictorial on the right: 
    Start at the left shown by the blue line; 
  • Start by adding the beads shown below to form row 5 and 6 counting from bottom up, (bead upwards with the longer end)
    Add 1 red bead
    Add 2 silver beads
    Add 3 red beads
    Add 2 silver beads
    Add 1 red bead

 

Step 2:
  • Continue upwards - Row 7
    Add 2 red beads
    Add 1 silver bead
    Add 2 red beads
  • Continue to bead the next row 8 but decreasing now:
    Add 1 red bead
    Add 2 silver beads
    Add 1 red bead

    For decreasing of peyote see: Decreasing Peyote Tutorial

Step 3: Continue upwards
  • Row 9:
    Add 1 silver bead
    Add 1 red bead
    Add 1 silver bead
  • Row 10:
    Add 4 red beads
  • Row 11: (decreasing)
    Add 1 red bead
    Add 1 silver bead
    Add 1 red bead
  • Row 12:
    Add 2 silver beads
  • Row 13:
    Add 3 red beads
  • Row 14: (decreasing)
    Add 2 red beads
  • Row 15:
    Add 1 silver bead
  • Row 16:
    Add 2 red beads
  • Row 17:
    Add 1 red bead
  • Row 18:
    Add 2 red beads

Now loop the remainder of this top string back through the piece until it's secure enough to cut away.

Now take the bottom string and bead the bottom of the tie - also decreasing all the way down.

  • Row 4:
    Add 1 red bead
    Add 2 silver beads
    Add 1 red bead
  • Row 3:
    Add 1 red bead
    Add 1 silver bead
    Add 1 red bead
  • Row 2:
    Add 2 red beads
  • Row 1:
    Add 1 red bead

Now loop the remainder of this bottom string back through the piece until it's secure enough to cut away.

Step 4:
  • Cut a new piece of string, start beading from the middle (show where the black arrow is pointing at)
  • Add:
    1 red bead
    3 silver beads
    1 red bead
    to form row 7 and 8 counting from bottom up.
  • Continue to bead upward with this same string:
    Add 3 red beads - row 9
    Add 2 red beads - row 10
    Add 1 red bead, 1 silver bead, 1 red bead - row 11
    Add 2 silver beads - row 12
    Add 3 red beads - row 13
    Add 2 red beads - row 14
    Add 1 red bead - row 15 (end this end of the string by looping back through the piece)
  • Start Downward - picking up the bottom string or adding a new piece of string on row 7.
    Add 2 red beads - row 6
    Add 3 red beads - row 5
    Add 2 silver beads - row 4
    Add 1 red bead, 1 silver bead, 1 red bead - row 3
    Add 2 red beads - row 2
    Add 1 red bead - row 1.

Tips on reading peyote graphs:

  1. Print out and use a ruler and draw a faint line on the two rows you started on
  2. Copy and save the picture and open it with Adobe Photoshop, show ruler, and use the ruler as a guide as you go along the way. (that's how I do it)

 

 

Step 5: Combining the two pieces:
  • Place the second piece you just made on the bottom and the first tie piece you made on the top to match the three top red beads with the bottom three red beads.
    Use the remaining string left or use a new piece of string to tie all the three matches together.
  • Then fold the top of the second piece down towards the joint and do the same thing by matching the top five beads with the opposite end of bottom five beads, tie these beads together, wrapping the first piece of beaded tie in the center. String the excess back through the piece.
  • Now you can loop a thin necklace chain through the hole formed by the folding of the top piece and wear it.
