Are you new to beading, or to be more specific, peyote beading? Do the patterns confuse you? Peyote was the hardest stitch I ever learned. I would pick up instructions, pick out beads and sit down to try to bead and it just didn't make sense to me at all. I did this every few months for over a year before I got my Aaah Haaa Moment, it clicked and I've loved peyote ever since.
Jennifer VanBenschoten, the beadwork guide at About.com, has some awesome tutorials for various types of peyote. If you're confused about peyote, check out these tutorials.
