Reversible ZigZag Cuff

I picked up the recent Bead & Button special issue Beading Basics Peyote Stitch. There are some interesting projects in it, including a reversible zigzag cuff.

I decided to take what I needed to start it to last week's Beading in the park. A looming summer storm threatened the gathering but I went anyways. Maria and I were the only ones who braved the threat. We each were able to work on our  projects.

I started the cuff, which uses a flattened tubular peyote stitch. It took a couple of restarts to get it working correctly. Here is what I got done that evening and over the next couple of evenings.

I hope to have it finished before the next meetup in August.


  1. Hi Jo-Ann,
    Glad to see what a great job you are doing on the cuff I had published in Bead and Button.The start up is a little tricky but plain sailing there after,hope you were pleased with your results and make lots of them.
    Happy Beading

    1. oh my gosh, you're the one who designed that? I absolutely love it! alas, I cannot find it, to buy the instructions. I have a lot of Bead and Button magazines, but when I click on that link up there maybe you could direct me to where I might buy a copy? it's driving me crazy, I've seen it before, and am amazed at the complexity it looks like it takes. you are brilliant. ;)
      thank you Susan. when I click on Jo-Annes link to B & B's special issue Beading Basics Peyote Stitch, it says it can't find it. I had been hoping to be able to purchase it. Cheers, and keep on beading, er, being amazing! ♥ Blessings
