Bead Store
1 inch Square Box _ optional
Blue = Miyuki 11° Delica bead, 2,140 beads (approximately 10 grams)
White Pearl = Miyuki 11° Delica bead, 188 (approximately 1 grams)
Miyuki 15° Seed bead, color of choice, 55 (less than 1 gram)

Nymo D, C-Lon Thread or Fireline (4 or 6 pound), #11 or #12 beading needle.

Be aware that if you use Fireline it is not as bendable as the thread. Try to work a bit looser and continuously bend the edges down while working on your piece.

**Start by waxing and stretching your thread (not needed if using Fireline). Tie in a “stopper” bead, leaving about a 6-8” tail for weaving in later and begin.

Need some Basic Peyote Stitch Instructions:

Finished pieces before weaving the sides and tops together.
Top Piece

Bottom Piece

Start Box Liner
D = Miyuki 11° Delica bead 
S = Miyuki 15° Seed bead

R = Round
Rounds begin with a Red dot
For the bottom of the Liner I used 3 different colors just for ease of seeing the rounds. You can use what ever color you prefer. How about Hot Pink!

The liner starts in Circular, flat peyote stitch. Then the sides are worked in Tubular peyote. 

Please Note: Place the Liner in your box. You can just place it, sew it or glue it permanently in.

Please Note:If you have an original Thread Heaven box you can use that instead of the beaded liner if you prefer.

Round 15 through Round 29 are worked with Delica beads, the last Round is worked with 15/0 seed beads.
