Item details

This simply stunning, beading pattern provides step by step instructions with very clear colour photographs to create a beautiful ornament that has an intriguing and fun movement.


This sparkling ornament is sure to grace any Christmas tree but would look just as pretty as an everyday ornament on a shelf! If you love Peyote it is relatively easy to do, created in components which are then stitched together. The ornament has a mechanical, telescopic 'secret'. Once completed you will be able to collapse and extend the cryptex so you can display it either way horizontally. If you choose to hang it vertically it will remain extended.

The finished ornament measures approximately 10cm/4" in height and 4cm/1.5" in diameter.

PLEASE NOTE: The Adobe PDF file is now available as an IMMEDIATE download! The file size is approximately 7.3MB. The tutorial is comprehensive and clear - 24 pages with 80 clear colour photographs!

I would advise this is an Advanced beading tutorial. I am confident that an Intermediate beader will also be able to accomplish this tutorial. I am here to help for those of you trying to tackle something a little more difficult! You should be comfortable working in peyote and component form. Also this tutorial is not a 'quick' make - and will require patience and time to complete successfully! As the owner of a completed Cryptex - I can assure you that every bead stitched is VERY worth the outcome! ...

This pattern may only be used by the purchaser and is for personal use ONLY. If you require advice on commercial licensing please contact the seller directly via email.

You may make one or two Ornaments to sell if you wish but please make sure you acknowledge the Designer.

Yet again another incredibly unique tutorial, even suitable for an inexperienced beader with knowledge of Peyote stitch. The added bonus is that there are no difficult beads to find. Clear instructions with many photographs to guide you through the project. Perfect!
