To make an easy peyote stitched donut bail, you will need the following materials and tools:

For the peyote stitch bail:

  • 1 donut, stoneware, ceramic, gemstone or polymer clay
  • Size 11 Japanese cylinder beads in color(s) to match or contrast with donut, 5 - 7 grams, depending on the size of the donut and the size of the bail
  • Beading thread to match or contrast with Japanese cylinder beads - size D nylon thread, or 6 lb. test FireLine
  • Size 12 beading needle
  • Scissors or thread cutter

For an 18" beaded rope:

  • Size 11 Japanese cylinder beads in color to match or contrast with beads used for bail, 10 grams
  • Size 11 Japanese or Czech seed beads in color to match or contrast with other beads and donut, 10 grams
  • Clasp of your choice
  • Beading thread - size D nylon thread or 6 lb. test FireLine
  • Size 12 beading needle
  • Scissors or thread cutter
