Use a tubular peyote stitch and various sizes and colors of the Seed Bead Cocktails™, to create a woven cover around
two glass bead spikes.
Cut and condition a 36-42" piece of size D thread and string on the spike bead. Add 11-12 size 11 seed beads, and
thread the cord back though the hole in the spike. Add 11-12 more size 11 beads and pass the cord through the hole in the
spike again. Each grouping of seed beads should be on each side of the spike bead. Pass the thread through all the seed
beads once or twice.
Weave 5-7 rows of tubular peyote with size additional size 11 beads, Extend the cover beyond the flat end of the spike
with 4 rows of size 8 round and hex beads.
Weave a row of “Translucent-Purple Fumed” size 11 beads adding two size 11 beads between each size 8 bead. This color
closely matches the “Magic Lilac” color of the spike bead.
Add one last row of size 11 beads.
Repeat for the second spike, finishing it with the purple row. Add row of size 8 hex beads to weave two segments
together and embellish with size 6 beads.
If desired, further embellish by weaving other beads on top.
Add a jump ring opposite sides of the finished piece. Attach the jump ring through the hole of a size 8 bead, and add a
long piece of chain to each jump ring.
