In the “Peyote Basics” chapter, you will learn the basics of creating flat peyote bands, then advance to circular and tubular variations, eventually learning to fashion dimensional jewelry pieces. Once you've mastered the basics, Melinda dives into designing dimensional jewelry pieces.

This book is very clear and easy to follow. I find it as useful as a reference as it is for specific projects.

I was excited when the book came in, I actually was expecting a magazine. I like how easy the instructions are to follow. The projects while beautiful, they gave me inspiration to do something different with the project, that would make it mine to be a totally one of a kind, piece.
