something new to celebrate

It’s not every day that something new comes along. However, 2018 has brought enough new beading things our way that you might start to think there really is something to celebrate every day.One of the hottest new bead-related items to note is actually a stitch—Peyote with a Twist. I learned about this stitch through Facebook and have been fortunate to be part of the “Peyote with a Twist—Not Crochet” group from just about the beginning. I’ve enjoyed being part of the enthusiasm surrounding this stitch and seeing how people are celebrating. Not only are beaders celebrating their success in learning the stitch, they’re also celebrating Gerlinde Lenz—the woman behind the genius of this stitch.Are you curious about Peyote with a Twist—Not Crochet?

gerlinde lenz

Gerlinde Lenz is a skilled and prolific beader and bead-weaving teacher. She has developed a number of unique stitches, including Herringote, Diamond Weave, and Peyote with a Twist (also known as Peytwist). Gerlinde is generous with her time and knowledge, freely sharing both to encourage and advance other bead weavers’ skills. As a teacher, she takes great pride in enabling others.Peyote with a Twist collectionLeaves created with Diamond WeaveIcosahedron, octahedron, and tetrahedron, created with Diamond WeaveQ: How did you get started beading?A: I’ve started a few different times.

gerlinde’s beading space

Some of Gerlinde’s experiments, with varying degrees of success (ALL PHOTOS COURTESY OF GERLINDE LENZ)Q: Where is your current beading space located?A: It’s on a big desk in the large room that I occupy in our apartment. A room divider provides a lot of storage space, but I like to think of my bead stash as being comparatively small.Q: How is your workspace organized?A: It isn’t! Various plastic tubs and boxes and four small drawer storage units are on the floor and on shelves all around me. My beads are sorted by type, size, and color, which is how I can find them most quickly. Some of my finished work is sorted by type (bangle, bracelet, tubular necklace, flat necklace, rings, pendants)—but not all. And then there are a few…

peyote with a twist

“Peyote with a Twist—Not Crochet” is a technique for using even-count peyote stitch to make cylindrical ropes that look similar to bead-crocheted ropes. The similarity is in the slant and the relative position of the beads. The beads form narrow coils or rings around the tube, unlike in tubular peyote stitch.Peyote with a Twist bracelet formed using single-seam construction: 9-bead circumference, size 8° seed beads, 10.2mm inner diameter glue-in end caps; finished length 8¼.Three types of peyote-stitched tubes: Left, formed by zipping the first and last rows of a peyote-stitched rectangle together; middle, woven as tubular peyote stitch; and right, woven as “Peyote with a Twist.” The green beads form the seam column in the Peyote with a Twist sample but are only used for effect in the other two.MATERIALS…
