Flecked Raspberry Gold Peyote Bracelet
I couldn’t resist making another peyote stitch bracelet when I found these three rich bead colors - Rainbow Raspberry, Gold/Red, and Golden Rose. I envisioned the three colors splashed across a wide band, all of them blending into rows of gold beads on each edge and finishing with a gold clasp. And here it is. I’ve offered the peyote stitch instructions on my website before but I’m doing it again because this bracelet has 10 rows of beading, the widest I’ve created. It also mixes the colors together as you work, which is much easier than it sounds. I’m including a graph on the right with the instructions. If you have any doubts about color placement, you can follow the graph bead by bead. I hope you enjoy my pattern as much as I’m enjoying wearing my colorful creation!
step 14 - Move to the other end of the bracelet and remove the stop bead. Thread the needle and finish the bracelet following steps 11 through 13.
Dot the threads that run through the clasp loops with a gold metallic marker.
