The new “Peyote with a Twist” technique developed by Gerlinde Lenz is the latest craze all over the web! The finished piece will look very similar to bead crochet without all the headaches of crochet. In this workshop we’ll begin to learn the basics of the stitch using one main color of a size 11 seed bead and one contracting color to create a simple stripe. This is the version shown in Jill Wiseman’s video.

If you enjoy making this piece, we encourage you to join us the following week to continue working with the technique, this time reading from a grid to create a beautiful geometric design. We have to warn you — this one is very addictive!

A nominal $9 fee is charged to participate in these sessions or you can use your Laura’s Bead Addicts Membership Club Card. We 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!
