Have you ever tried to work a peyote pattern form a chart?  And got completely lost?  It’s horrible.  You have to keep track of the row you are on and remember to skip over the up or down beads to stay on track.  You always end up messing up and taking out rows and rows of your work — only to mess up again!

Well, I just came across this amazing video of a technique called “Fast Peyote.”  With this technique, you put on the beads for the entire row without skipping over up/down beads!   The technique as shown uses a double-drop (usually peyote 2 beads at a time), but there is no reason you couldn’t do the same with the usual 1-drop. Absolutely brilliant!  Check it out at: How to Make a Panda Pendant with Fast Peyote.
