As far as ingenious inventions go, one of the best for the beading world is most definitely the Quick Start Peyote Panel. These simple tools offer a makeshift base for starting peyote stitch that perfectly mimics the raised beads of a second row. With these cards, beaders can practice the weave without other stitches, and turn first pieces into beautiful finished projects. The deceptively simple tool allows any beader to get perfect results the first time.
The cards are really simple to use with either Delicas or round seed beads - set up takes about three seconds and then weaving begins. You can use all or some of the slots in the card to start a row of peyote in even-count, odd-count or two-drop. Once you’re ready to remove the card, the beadwork is easily released and ready to finish as desired. Reusable Quick Start Peyote cards are available in a variety of popular seed bead sizes, including 15/o and 8/o. They can also be used to start other stitches like right angle weave and Ndebele herringbone. To see a peyote panel card in action, watch the Even Count QSP video on YouTube.
