Play in the Waves Bracelet

PROJECT B2077
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This Peyote bracelet not only uses various sizes of beads but also uses various colors to highlight the change in bead size within these waves.
Instructions
For this project please watch our video: How to do Peyote Bead Weaving with Various Sizes of Beads.
  1. Using what you learned in the video, weave five "waves".
  2. When you come to the end of the bead weaving, do not tie off your thread. You will use this tail to attach the clasp.
  3. Before you attach the clasp, make sure that it has been separated and is facing the correct way. Please see photo for reference. Watch our video: How to Attach Tube Clasps to Peyote Bead Weaving.
  4. 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 two beads to be coming out the third bead in the top row.
  5. Thread through the first hole of the clasp. And back down through the third bead creating a loop. Follow this loop thread path twice more for security.
  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 eleventh bead.
  9. Thread through the third hole of the clasp. And back down through the eleventh 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 fifteenth bead.
  11. Thread through the fourth hole of the clasp. And back down through the fifteenth bead creating a loop. Follow this loop thread path twice more for security.
  12. Take your thread and follow back though the thread path to tie off and weave in your thread.
  13. You will repeat this process for the other side of the bracelet to attach the other end of the clasp. Be sure to double check that you have the clasp facing the right way before attaching it.
