Difficulty Level: 2 out of 3 | Technique: odd count cellini/peyote with edging | Beadvisor: Laura
I was reminiscing recently about my first encounters with bead weaving and remembered a flat cellini bracelet I was taught that was called “Bump in the Road”. Cellini stitch, and really any form of peyote, has remained one of my favorite stitches all this time. I decided to sit down and stitch a flat cellini of my own that reminds me a bit of this first bracelet, but with a few more color variations and an edging that includes crystals for extra sparkle. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
A nominal $9 fee is charged to participate in these sessions or you can use your Laura’s Bead Addicts Membership Club Card. We kindly ask that you always use supplies from Laura’s Beads when in our beading room. Thank you!.

What is the Weekly Bead Circle?
Beading at home is a relaxing and enjoyable hobby, there is no doubt about it, but beading as a group is FUN! Each week we’ll pick a project, grab our magazines and gather in the beading room at Laura’s. The projects we choose do require some knowledge of bead-weaving and a comfort level with reading patterns since beaders will be working more independently than in a class setting, however one of our staff (also known as your “Beadvisor”) is in the beading room during the session to help if you have any questions along the way. Your Beadvisor will also have made the selected piece ahead of time so that you can see what it looks like completed and will discuss her experience in making it, along with providing suggestions, tips and ideas for adaptations.
New to bead weaving?
Attend one of our bead-weaving classes and learn everything you need to know about bead weaving. Classes are small, so you’ll have plenty of teacher time. You’ll familiarize yourself with the terminology of bead weaving so you’ll start to understand how to read patterns and practice various stitches and techniques. In no time at all you’ll be ready to join in the Bead Circle!
