Midnight Metallic Bracelet

PROJECT B2011
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
These metallic miyuki delicas will shimmer in the moonlight. This is a very cool take on the traditional peyote. This two-drop pattern is similar but with it, you can create even more variation in your patterns.
Instructions
This technique is a two-drop even count peyote. You may want to watch the video of even count peyote before beginning this project. This is the same, however you will use two beads for every stitch.
  1. See the attached pattern for this bracelet.
  2. You will want to continue until you have the desired length, however for the clasp to sit properly you will need to end the peyote pattern so that the last row on the ends are mirror images of each other.
  3. To attach the clasp, start on the end of the peyote that has the two green beads on the end.
  4. Weave back through the two green and up thru the two blue and catch the first ring of the clasp.
  5. Weave down through the next two green beads, come up and catch the first loop again, weave back through the next two blue beads.
  6. Come up after the blue beads and catch the second loop, and go back down through the next two green beads.
  7. Come up just before the next two blue beads, catch the third loop, and go back down through the blue beads, come up and catch the same third loop again. Weave back down through the next two green beads.
  8. Weave up through the fourth loop and back down through the next two blue beads.
  9. Come up again and loop through the fifth loop and back down through the next two green beads.
  10. Come up once more, and loop through the fifth loop. Go back down through the next two blue beads. Now you will turn around your thread, and weave back through the process, all the way back to the first loop. Burn off your thread.
  11. To attach the other side of the clasp to the other side of the bracelet, simply repeat this process. Make sure to keep the clasp placement even. It may also help to keep the clasp together to make sure that you are not sewing it in backwards.
