If you have been doing other forms of bead work you may not need to start anxious about this being the right project. Beads and thread work in the same way for all beading projects.
Go ahead and print out a grid for making peyote beading patterns found here : http://shala.addr.com/beads/resources/graphpaper/peyotegraph.gif .
Once you have your graph paper you can begin to make your design on it. Start with something simple until you get the idea of how peyote stitching goes.
Always start your design a few lines under the starting line of the graph to represent the ides to never start a design in the first line.
This can cause the design to get messed up in the creation process. Once you have done the original string of beads and the secondary placement (the first beads done one by one) you will have your starter and can begin your own creative and original design.
