Instructions
Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for up-to-date information.
Please note that the pattern for this bracelet makes a bracelet that is 6.75 inches long. The pattern is a repeating pattern, meaning that you can simply repeat the repetitive parts of the pattern to make it longer. You will have more then enough beads to make any length bracelet that you want.
  1. Start by threading your needle with 6 to 8 feet of Fireline thread. Use a length that you are comfortable with, you will need to add more thread as you go to complete your bracelet.
  2. Please watch the video: How to Flat Odd-Count Peyote Stitch. Based upon what you learned in the video, please follow the pattern provided and bead weave your bracelet.
  3. After the length of your bracelet has been beaded, please watch the video: How to Create a Tapered End Using Decreases in Peyote Stitch. Following what you learned in the video, create a tapered end on both sides of your bracelet. Weave in your tails and tie off your threads.
  4. Open a jump ring and slide it through the end bead on one side of your bracelet. Link on one half of your magnetic clasp. Close the jump ring. Repeat on the other side of your bracelet.
  5. All done!
