Retired - Jakarta Bracelet

PROJECT B2039
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
By using a peyote tube of Miyuki Luminous Delicas, I have added a pop of color to the Vintaj natural brass chain. This bracelet is fun and easy and it comes together really quickly.
Instructions
This finished bracelet will measure 7 1/4 inches. To make this longer or shorter, adjust the length of all four chains. Before you begin please watch our video: How to do Flat Even Count Peyote Stitch.
  1. Begin by cutting four lengths of chain 6.5 inches each.
  2. Open one jump ring. Hook this jump ring onto each last link in all four chains. Close the jump ring.
  3. Open one jump ring. Attach this jump ring to the loop of the fold over clasp. Hook this jump ring onto each last link on the other side of all four chains. Do not twist the chains. Close the jump ring. Set this aside.
  4. Using a random pattern of the Luminous mix 11/0 seed beads, make a strip of peyote 10 beads wide. It will need to be 16 rows long. Test out that your tube will close over all four chains. You may need to add or subtract a row depending on how tight you want it on the chains.
  5. When you come to the final row, you will zip up the peyote to make the tube. You can see and example of how to do this in this video (How to cover a channel bangle with bead weaving). Tie off and weave in your thread.
  6. Clasp your bracelet closed and you are all done.
