Peyote Charm Necklace – Free Class with Michaels Classroom

Sign up for the Peyote Charm Necklace class here (Canadians must click on the link twice)
Live Class October 27, 5pm Central Time

Class Project PDF is here:  Peyote Charm Necklace Step-by-Step

Description for our class:

Create a personalized charm necklace using any charms and colors you like! The technique we will learn is a bead-weaving staple: lengthwise, single-column, peyote stitch. The sample is worked with a unique spin that uses different bead sizes and counts. It creates a beaded chain that is strong while still being delicate and flexible. In the center of the chain we will add loops to capture charms.
