  • How to make a stitched necklace. Peyote Stitch Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Here is my pattern for creating this peyote stitch necklace. It is a simple stitch that you can learn from YouTube.

  • Step 2

    Once you have made the pendant, take a really long piece of beading string and thread it through all the beads in the top edge of the pendant. My piece of string was about 4 feet long.

  • Step 3

    Position the string so 1/4 is on one side of the pendant and the other 3/4 is on the other side.

  • Step 4

    Starting on the longer side of the string, load up beads in a random pattern. Fill the string with beads until it is the length you want for the final necklace.

  • Step 5

    Make a loop with your beaded string by looping it back through the top beads on the pendant and pull taut.

  • Step 6

    You should now have an un-beaded length of string on either side of the necklace. Bead each side of the string with the same random beading method as you did on the first strand.

  • Step 7

    Once you load both sides of the string with beads, knot the two strands together in the back of the necklace.
