Peyote stitch. Ho Hum. But just a few small tweaks and the versatile peyote stitch goes from simple to spectacular. The tubular peyote Cellini spiral variation turns a plain tube into a cascade of curls. Go a step further. Alternate the Cellini spiral and you have a dramatic undulating wave of sparkle and shine. Learn to taper the stitch down to a flat surface, integrate a little wire work, add a classic bead cap and finish it off with an easy toggle. Serpentine is an eye-catching bracelet that can never be called Ho Hum.
