Learn the Secrets to Structural Peyote Stitch with Nancy Cain

Peyote stitch is a favorite technique for seed beaders, and with good reason: peyote stitch is one of the easiest to learn and one of the most versatile off-loom bead-weaving stitches around.

After learning how to make beaded amulet bags with peyote stitch, I ventured into the world of shaped peyote stitch, thanks in no small part to artists like Kate McKinnon, Diane Fitzgerald, and Jean Power. Peyote stitch has the potential to create any kind of self-supporting three-dimensional structure that you can imagine.

If you want to challenge yourself and learn how to take your peyote stitch to a new dimension, you won't want to miss our next live webinar, Techniques for Structural Peyote Stitch with Nancy Cain on Tuesday, February 10, 2105 at 1 p.m. EST.

This live online education event is for beaders who want to learn about using thread tension, bead shape and size, bead engineering, and more factors that come into play when using peyote stitch to create sound and sturdy three-dimensional structural beadwork.

What can structural peyote stitch do for you? It was the main technique that I used when I created my Mother of Dragons collar for the 2012 Battle of the Beadsmith competition. I spent many hours of trial and error working out techniques for creating sturdy, self-supporting beaded structures through a series of increases and decreases. It took days of experimentation for me to figure out what worked and what didn't, based on my years of beading experience, but master bead artist Nancy Cain has put it all together for you in this fabulous one-hour webinar.
