I have a little experience making peyote stitch rings and usually just stitch together combinations of beads I like, so this kit is a step up for me. This kit comes with a pattern, beads, a needle and thread - everything you need to make 4 rings plus more. The pattern is well written and easy to follow, if you have trouble getting started, there are free video tutorials to watch, which I find helpful. This kit is also beautifully put together and would make a great gift. I just decided to buy the other four designs - I love the color combinations.
