Designer Josie Fabre offers a new twist on a traditional technique, perfect for first-time stitchers who love the flat bands of peyote jewelry but want a faster way to achieve beautiful results.

The resulting finished pieces look just as intricate and polished as traditional peyote stitch, but in less time. While bracelets are the main jewelry piece created in peyote stitch, Josie has also added necklaces and earrings to her project mix.

Do you know how to do fast peyote stitch?  That's where you string two rows of beads and then zig and zag your needle between the rows to zip it up.  It's an especially neat trick when you are trying to follow a charted pattern.  So Josie Fabre has taken full advantage of this in her fun new book, Fast Peyote Stitch Jewelry, published by Kalmbach.  All of Josie's pieces are flat multi-drop peyote, which is a great thing for beginners.

Most of the 25+ projects are bracelets, although there is a smattering of earrings and pendants as well.  Josie recommends Delica seed beads, and gives you the exact item number for each color she uses.  The projects are divided by theme: nature, wings, animals, classic colors, moderns, and a couple of more challenging charts.

All the designs are Josie's originals, and there is nice variety in the charts, even though the construction is all basically the same.  So be aware...if you are a person who likes to work with a similar technique for awhile, this may be your book! - Cyndi Lavin -
