One of my most popular hubs to date is my Beaded Peyote Triangle Step by Step Instructions (Flat, Open, and Tubular) hub. I'm glad that this has been helpful for so many beaders! I hope that continues to be true. I also hope that many of you have experimented with those techniques and are itching to do more with them. There are so many fun possibilities for beadwoven triangles. I only scratched the surface in my first hub. I've put together a collection of pieces to inspire you that use the techniques that I outlined in the first hub. Hopefully you'll see some new color combinations, jewelry uses, or other inspiration that will get your creative juices flowing. I've also put together a handful of patterns that take those techniques to a new level. If you still can't find what you're looking for, let me know. I'll be happy to help you in any way that I can. Happy beading!

A few guidelines for patterns:
1) Please note that unless it is otherwise noted in the for pay pattern listings, they are for the PDF patterns ONLY and do not include any supplies such as string or beads.
2) Unless it is specified otherwise, all patterns are appropriate for beginner beadweavers and beyond.
3) Unless it is specified otherwise, all patterns are for personal use. You do not have permission to make items to sell. If you are interested in selling your items, please contact the pattern authors directly to discuss separate contracts.

You can find many of the following examples online by searching "beadwoven triangles" on Etsy.

Example #1: Triangle Earrings in Topaz and Root Beer on Aged Copper Earwires

You can attach your earring or pendant loops at the triangle points or in the middle of the triangle sides.  Also consider different types of wire for your earrings and different stringing options for pendants and necklaces.

Pattern #1: Tiny Triangles (bracelet) and Big Sister (pendant)

This adorable pattern uses a tubular triangle technique to bezel triangle crystals for a bracelet or a pendant. I've included a couple links for triangle crystals.

Pattern #2: Pendant-Earrings - "Trangles"

This pattern links two triangles together that can then be used for a pendant or earrings. It is designed for intermediate beadweavers and beyond. The stitches required for this pattern are odd count peyote, bezeling, flat peyote, and herringbone.

Pattern #3: 3D Peyote Triangle Pendant

For those of you looking to do more with your tubular triangles, this tutorial pairs one of these triangles with a beaded bead and bail, all in the peyote stitch, to create a pendant.

Pattern #4: Two-Sided Peyote Triangle

This pattern gives directions for making a two-sided peyote triangle that has a different pattern on each side. It also comes with blank graphs so you can design your own patterns. The pattern shows a finished triangle as a pendant, but you can use these triangles for other types of jewelry, too.

Pattern #5: Butterfly Bail Pattern

I give a brief explanation of the beaded bail based on the triangle design in my first hub. This pattern fully explains it and gives a few variations, including different bead detail and patterns. It also includes pictures that show how to use the bails for different shaped donuts. A blank graph is also included with this tutorial for making your own patterns.

      You will get the blank graph with this pattern. For the money, I think it's worth it.

      Kate, check out this thread:

      http://www.beadingdaily.com/forums/p/6646/66739.as...

      The diagram included should help and you can look for the recommended book as well. I wish I had more for you, but that's the best I have right now. If I find anything else, I'll let you know.

      I'm glad that you enjoyed it! Beadweaving is still not the most popular jewelry form, but I enjoy it more than any other crafty activity right now.

      whoa

      certainly is a far cry from the peyote stitch I did 30 years ago! they never sold.

      but dude, let me dare put a beaded lighter cover or a beaded keychain on the table and pow

      gone

      they always left my keys however!

      thank you for this remembering...my eyes cant see the seed beads anymore much less the string and eye of the needle! but I still embroider and the swiss weaving reminds me of beadwork :)

      Thanks! I made the pieces that I featured in my first peyote triangles hub, but I can't take credit for any of these pieces. There are a LOT of talented beadweaving jewelry artists on Etsy, though!
