To get started peyote stitching you will need a few very specific things. Finding beads of the right size and color you want is important, but so is having the right needle.
If you do not have the right needle and thread you will not be able to complete the project. This may even seem to work for a while, but can become very frustrating when it stops doing so in the middle of a great looking project you have spent hours on.
This project is almost meditative because it is slow and something you must force yourself to be patient with. Having the right beads, needle, and thread is all you need to make a beautiful piece of flat peyote stitch work.
Tools that can commonly make the job easier are bees wax, needle nose pliers, and a piece of thick rubber or flush sided leather scrap (for grabbing the needle and getting it to pull through the hole).
