How to Make a Peyote Stitch Bezel

The Peyote stitch bezel creates a fun frame for your cabochons or pendants. This simple technique gives your designs a layered look, as it adds depth and dimension to seed bead bezels. We'll show you how to achieve this look so you can create a bezel that you can proudly say you created yourself! Feel free to add even more embellishments by learning how to create a fringe on a seed bead bezel.
STEP ONESTEP TWOSTEP THREE
After gluing the cabochon onto a backing such as felt or Lacy's Stiff Stuff, Create the first row of beads using the Two Seed Bead Back Stitch. You will need to end up with an even number of beads in this row. Run the thread back through all of the beads to reinforce them. Add a bead to the needle, then skipping a bead, go through the next bead along the row of the back stitch. Repeat picking up a bead, skip a bead and then through the next bead. Continue all the way around the piece.
STEP FOURSTEP FIVESTEP SIX
When you get to the end of the row, go up through the first bead of the Peyote stitch row. Then, pick up a bead and go through the next bead. Repeat picking up a bead, then through the next bead and so on. Continue all the way around the piece. By pulling the thread, this will allow the beads to gather around the edge of the stone.
STEP SEVENSTEP EIGHTSTEP NINE
Your piece should now have 2 rows. If you would like to stop there, just go through the rows to reinforce and then make a knot in the back. If you want to add another row with smaller beads, just repeat from step 2 through 6.
