Retired - Festive Christmas Lights Bracelet

PROJECT B1123
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Shiny and bright, this peyote stitch bracelet features little Christmas lights on a white background.
Instructions
Finished size: approximately 7". To adjust the size, add or subtract rows. When adding rows, add solid background color or improvise the pattern.
  1. Before you begin, watch the instructional video: How to do Flat Even Count Peyote Stitch.
  2. Thread a size 12 beading needle with a length of crystal Fireline beading thread. Use as long of a length as you are comfortable working with. You will need to add new thread several times throughout this project. If you are unfamiliar with how to do this, watch this video.
  3. Using size 11/0 Delica seed beads in opaque chalk white, matte transparent kelly green, silver lined light green, silver lined orange, silver lined sapphire, and silver lined red, follow the pattern in the first chart to complete the 30 bead wide design, working from the top down. Then move on to the second chart, and work down that until the end, which should be 188 rows in total.
  4. Weave your thread around to come back out through the 3rd to last bead you wove, moving in a downward direction. String 21 white beads, then go back through the original bead in the same direction to create a circle.
  5. Weave through, skipping the next four beads in the last row of peyote. Create another loop on the fifth as you did before.
  6. Weave through, skipping the next four beads in the last row of peyote. Create a third loop on the fifth as before.
  7. Tie off and weave in your ends.
  8. On the other end of the bracelet, weave in a new length of thread. Weave through to exit the second bead in the first row of peyote. String 4 white seed beads. Then string a siam red 8.5mm rondelle Czech glass bead. String another white bead, and then go back down through the glass rondelle bead and the next white bead. String 3 more white beads and then go down through the next bead in the final row of peyote.
  9. Weave through the last 2 rows of beads, skipping the next three beads in the final row of peyote, and coming out of the fourth. Attach a second glass rondelle bead as you did the first.
  10. Weave through, skipping the next three beads in the final row of peyote, and coming out of the fourth. Attach the third glass rondelle bead as before.
  11. Tie off and weave in your ends.
