Peyote rings look great on your fingers, but did you know that the same concept can be used as slider beads? That's what we did here.
Now you can combine your love of seed beads and leather by creating seed bead sliders for your leather designs, like Teri did in her Bolder Boulder necklace. The seed bead sliders will allow you to bring your favorite colors to more designs and they look great paired with bold Regaliz components. Follow these steps to learn how easy it is to rock this look
Create sliders for the Regaliz 10x6mm whisky oval leather using the peyote stitch. The first row will feature two TOHO 11/0 bead rounds in opaque red brown, followed by two TOHO 11/0 bead rounds in matte nickel-plated bronze/plum iris, two TOHO 11/0 bead rounds in marbled cranberry, two bronze/plum iris TOHOs and two opaque red brown TOHOs. In the next row, you will add an opaque red brown TOHO, a bronze/plum iris TOHO, a marbled cranberry TOHO, a bronze/plum iris TOHO and an opaque red brown TOHO. Continue adding beads in this manner until your slider is long enough to wrap around the leather, then close up the slider. Repeat this step three more times and set aside your sliders.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
