usually peyote is used but other stitches can be used

Brick stitch!! Most people use peyote but brick stitch is easier to me. Anyways I’m not good at explaining so this might not make sense but first you make a row with ladder stitch (you ever made a lizard? You can use both ends of string like that or you can string up into your new bead, down into your previous bead, then back up into your new bead. This directional pattern will switch with every bead you add, so the next bead will be down-up-down)

Once you have your first row, (which should be the widest part of your charm preferably) you add your next bead on top of the row where a “bridge” is. That’s the bit of string that connects two of your beads. Anyways I like to hold the bead like how I want it to sit, then I go down through the bead, under the “bridge,” then back up. To increase (extra bead on new row) you add an extra bead on your string before you add on your next bead through the bridge. If you want to increase with multiple beads, you just ladder stitch them together I think then follow the previous step :] to decrease, just add one bead when you start your new row. If you have areas to skip you can just string through the bridges without adding any beads

Not sure if this makes sense and there are other tutorials of course but I hope this helps a little!!

peyote stitch (whether you use even or odd depends on the pattern)
