There are many books that will explain the tubular peyote stitch
(which is very easy to learn by the way) What I would recommend is
either of Carol Wilcox Wells’ books (The Art and Elegance of
Beadweaving, or Creative Bead Weaving) both of these books will
teach you about the tubular peyote as well as tubular brick, tubular
herringbone, tubular square stitch, tubular right-angle weave,
african helix, and some other variations.
Both books do have projects in them as well, but the instructional
pages that preceed the projects are great. Not to mention the photos
of Ms Wells work as well as those of many of the major contemporary
I would purchase Creative Bead Weaving first and if you like her
style of teaching I would get the second book as well. The first one
really hits on the basics and the second takes the basics in new
directions. But both are very inspiring.
I honestly don’t think that you would need a whole book dedicated to
peyote. There sre some out there, but since you mention the tubular
form, there are a wealth of different tubular structures that you
might want to try out as well.
If you need any further do not hesitate to contact me
off list. I am a book and magazine junkie with a ridiculous library
with quite a few beading books.
Have fun. Beading is very theraputic.
