Chartreuse Honeycomb Peyote Bracelet

PROJECT B1071
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Play with patterns and colors in this lovely sleek peyote stitch bracelet. Made entirely out of bead woven seed beads, with a matching toggle clasp.
Instructions
Finished size: 6 3/8". To adjust the size, add or subtract rows worked, and adjust the color pattern accordingly for the ends.
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to do Flat Even Count Peyote Stitch. This video will demonstrate the stitch you will use to make this bracelet.
  2. Using size 10/0 Delica seed beads in matte chartreuse AB, transparent silver grey, and white, follow the pattern in the first chart to complete the 24 bead wide honeycomb design, working from the top down. Then move on to the second chart, and work down that until the end, which should be 151 rows.
  3. Watch the video: How to Add a Beaded Toggle Clasp to a Peyote Stitch Bracelet. This video will walk you through the steps to add the clasp to your bracelet. The added pieces for the clasp are shown broken out into sections in the third and fourth charts. Be sure to follow them to make your toggle bar and clasp opening match the pattern of your bracelet.
  4. After completing the 151st row of peyote stitch, follow the pattern for the clasp opening to add five more rows only 6 beads wide to the left side of your bracelet.
  5. Starting from bottom of the pattern and working up, create another piece of peyote stitch weaving 24 beads wide and 10 rows long. Then follow the pattern to add five more rows only 6 beads wide to the right side of this piece (the right side when aligned with the pattern). Zip this piece to the bottom of the bracelet, matching the pattern, as shown in the video. Then zip closed the other side of the opening.
  6. Go back to the beginning of your bracelet. Weave in to the center 4 beads of the first row and add 6 rows 4 beads wide, following the pattern in the last chart from the bottom up.
  7. Create a new piece of weaving 18 beads wide and 10 rows long, following the pattern. Zip the toggle bar closed as shown in the video, and then attach it to the bracelet as demonstrated.
  8. Tie off and weave in all of your thread tails.
