July 2007 Beaded Apple Peyote Earrings 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 Apple earrings 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.

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)
