Early Morning Ombre

Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: Weekend

Sample and Project by Emily Miller

Looking out over the water from Berkeley, Emily sees the morning sun rise over the grey and gold of the San Francisco Bay. In this gorgeous Peyote Stitch design, ombré color shift is the technique Emily uses to create art.

Peyote Stitch looks fancy but is easy to do. A great addition to your skill set, it is part of our Seed Bead School, which Emily is doing with Kate on Facebook LIVE. Click on the VIDEO tab above and learn along. If you’re new to Peyote, buying our Seed Bead School Inna Kit makes learning Peyote Stitch easy. Once you’ve learned the basics you can easily graduate to colors, like Early Morning Ombré, and get really creative.
This is an Intermediate-Level Project.

Time to Complete: Weekend

Project Map

Emily’s Early Monring Ombré sample will fit an 8 inch wrist. However, in the video, she talks about how you can adjust length by shortening the rows in the solid-color sections. Be sure to consider the length of the button loop in your final-length calculation. This style of Peyote Stitch, which is flat, can be done with any four colors of 11/0 seed beads. The sky is the limit!
