Metal Steps Two Drop Peyote Bracelet

PROJECT B2196
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
For a fun way to experiment and expand your peyote stitch skills, try doing a two drop version with this metallic pattern.
Instructions
For this technique please watch our video: How to Do Two Drop Flat Even Count Peyote Stitch Bead Weaving.
  1. From what you learned in the video, begin the weaving, please refer to the pattern image. This is a repetitive pattern so simply repeat this pattern until you have your desired length.
  2. As you work you may need to tie off and add more thread.
  3. When you have reached your desired length, you will attach the clasp. You will see that you have three "up beads". When looking at the end of your piece, lay it out with the farthest left bead being the first "up bead".
  4. Simply weave your needle to come up on the outside of the second "up bead". Pick up six silver seed beads, and go through one loop of the tube clasp. Thread down through the two second up beads making a loop.
  5. Move the thread to the third up beads and pick up six silver seed beads, and go through one loop of the tube clasp. Thread down through the two third up beads making a loop.
  6. Repeat this to attach the other side of the clasp. Make sure that the tube clasp is oriented so that it closes properly.
  7. Tie off and weave in your threads.
