Bead Weaving

Bead weaving can encompass many artistic stitches to create necklaces, bracelets and even earrings using seed beads, those tiny beads that come in a variety of sizes and a rainbow of colors. One of the most popular and well known stitches is the Peyote stitch which is quite easy to learn and can be used to make everything from bookmarks to purses, aside from lovely jewelry!

Another very easy stitch to learn is the Spiral Rope which can be created as a simple rope for hanging a pendant or, using your imagination, it can be made into a necklace or bracelet that’s as ornate as you want to make it!

Bead Weaving classes are open to students ages 10 and up.
