Peyote Chain Ring

Hi everyone! There's a new tutorial on my Youtube channel: peyote rings with chains.


I've been working in these peyote rings since February when my Pinterest was flooded with images of peyote rings for valentine's day. I created one for myself (the black one), just the band, but a couple weeks ago I thought that I could do something different with it. Then I added the chains and I liked the result so much that I ended up making more rings and this tutorial for you.

The designs is quite simple, especially if you're familiar with peyote stitch. The part of adding the chain can be a bit tricky if you don't pay attention, though. It's important that when measuring the chain around the ring, you don't wrap it neither too tight nor too loose. And it's really important that you don't twist the chain while linking its ends to form the chain ring. If you let that happen, the chain will not lay flat around the ring and it will be a mess at the end when attaching it to the peyote band.


I used the software EasyBeadPatterns to draw the arrows and hearts you see in the rings. The software is free and you can use it to create different drawings in the ring, if you wish.

If you know peyote stitch and are good with diagrams, you don't have to watch the whole video, you may use the diagram below to create the ring band (I'm sorry the picture isn't larger, but it's the largest size you can get in the software):
