Six Stripe Peyote Stitch Bracelet
Peyote stripes take on a bit of glamour when they are made with crystal lined Delica beads. Clean, shiny lines create a contemporary vibe that shapes around the wrist like a soft cuff bracelet. If you’ve hesitated to try the Peyote stitch because it looks too complicated, you’ll find the color grouping presented here, make this pattern quite easy to follow.
step 1 - Cut a strand of beading thread to measure 6’. At 12 inches, add a stop bead on one end.
step 8 - As you can see, you begin each row with a silver bead and then add beads between the dropped beads. The added beads should be the color of the bead above it.
Continue adding rows for the length bracelet you need. My bracelet measures 6.50” long and used 52 beads for each stripe.
step 11 - Remove the stop bead from the thread and add the needle. Attach the clasp using the same technique as in step 9.
