This is a tutorial for "Rhombic Mosaic", a beaded icosahedron made without using a single triangle! Made instead using peyote diamonds it's a new twist on one of the basic geometric shapes.

It is suitable for intermediate beaders familiar with peyote stitch with increases, as well as with maintaining a consistent tension.

The finished beadwork shape will be approximately 6cm in diameter, and it uses approximately 22g of size 11 delicas in total.

The tutorial is 51 pages with diagrams and photographs for each step. It contains a materials list and instructions for making the individual peyote diamonds as well as detailed instructions for assembling them into the icosahedron. Two different colourways are included in the tutorial.

If you have any questions or need any help please do not hesitate to contact me.

Though I have not yet begun beading this tutorial, all the others that Bead mechanics has done have been well designed and easy to follow.
