The Lulana Star - Tutorial - Peyote Stitch - Geometric Beadwork

9.5cm diameter x 2.5cm depth | Miyuki Delica Beads
This is the Lulana Star - a peyote star pattern and tutorial with a difference! Peyote stars are a wonderful way to adorn any Christmas Tree but they also make beautiful window ornaments. The innovative and intriguing Lulana Star is more challenging than most... but the bead list is few...

The name Lulana means Shining Moon, Guiding Star and Winner. The name is also of Zulu origin I believe. I was actually intrigued to find that in 'numerology' the number for Lulana is 7... so I began counting how many instances of '7' occur in the design - and there are far more than you might at first think! As you work the tutorial I hope you enjoy discovering them all...

The Lulana Star ornament is approximately 9.5cm/3.75" in diameter x 2.5cm/1" in depth when completed.

The tutorial provides step by step instructions, with very clear colour photographs for this beautiful star. You can bead it in any colour way you choose. The choice is yours! This star is designed to be suspended.


I would advise this is an 'Expert' level beading tutorial. I am confident that an Advanced beader, looking for something a little challenging, will also be able to accomplish this tutorial as I have included as many helpful hints and tips as I can. Also, I am here to help for those of you trying to tackle something a little more difficult! It is also very important that you have the ability to 'vary' your tension as you WILL need to bead tightly and softly (although for different components)... If you are unsure AT ALL - PLEASE GET IN TOUCH BEFORE YOU PURCHASE!

You should be comfortable working in component form, peyote and starting and ending new threads. Please bear in mind that this tutorial is not a 'quick' make - and will require patience and time to complete successfully!
