Designer Plaid Bracelet

PROJECT B6014
Designer: Suki Song
Skill Level: Advanced
A trendy take on the otherwise classic peyote technique, this is a perfect accessory for fall and winter.
Instructions
These instructions make a 6 1/2 inch bracelet. To adjust the length, simply continue the pattern of the bracelet. Please note you may need to purchase additional beads if you would like a longer bracelet.
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to do Flat Even Count Peyote Stitch. Note: As you work, you will need to tie off and add new thread.
  2. From what you learned in the video, follow the pattern chart provided. You will need to leave a long tail in the beginning, because you will use this thread to later attach the clasp.
  3. Complete approximately 6 1/4" of the pattern. Again, leave a long tail at the end to attach the clasp.
  4. The clasp will add approximately 1/4" to your bead weaving. To attach the clasp, first separate the two ends. Be sure that they are facing the correct way when you attach them. Please see photo for reference.
  5. Taking the thread from the end of your bead weaving, go down through the bead directly below that last bead. Thread up diagonally through the next three beads to be coming out the fourth bead in the top row.
  6. Thread down through the adjacent bead and weave along the thread path and come up through the seventh bead.
  7. Thread through the second hole of the clasp. And back down through the seventh bead creating a loop. Follow this loop thread path twice more for security.
  8. Thread down through the adjacent bead and weave along the thread path and come up through the tenth bead.
  9. Thread through the third hole of the clasp. And back down to the tenth bead creating a loop. Follow this loop thread path twice more for security.
  10. Thread down through the adjacent bead and weave along the thread path and come up through the thirteenth bead.
  11. Thread through the fourth hole of the clasp. And back down to the thirteenth bead creating a loop. Follow this loop thread path twice more for security.
  12. Thread down through the adjacent bead and weave along the thread path and come up through the sixteenth bead.
  13. Thread through the fifth hole of the clasp. And back down through the sixteenth bead creating a loop. Follow this loop thread path twice more for security.
  14. Thread down through the adjacent bead and weave along the thread path and come up through the nineteenth bead.
  15. Thread through the sixth hole of the clasp. And back down through the nineteenth bead creating a loop. Follow this loop thread path twice more for security.
  16. Thread down through the adjacent bead and weave along the thread path and come up through the twenty-second bead.
  17. Thread through the seventh hole of the clasp. And back down through the twenty-second bead creating a loop. Follow this loop thread path twice more for security.
  18. Take your thread and follow back through the thread path to tie off and weave in your thread.
  19. You will repeat this process for the other side of the bracelet to attach the other end of the clasp.
  20. Take your chain and cut two lengths of 6 1/4" (or more, depending on the desired length of your bracelet).
  21. For this next step please watch the video, How to Add Chain to Peyote Bead Weaving.
  22. Follow the instruction in the video and weave your chain onto one edge of your bracelet.
  23. Repeat the previous step for the other edge of your bracelet. Tie off an weave in your threads.
  24. All done!
