Sante Fe Memories Bracelet

PROJECT B2468
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate

Subtle and soft colors make this design a sweet edition to your jewelry box. Even count peyote allows this to work up quickly and is a great project for someone new to bead weaving.

Instructions
  1. To begin this project, please watch our video: How To Do Flat Even Count Peyote. From what you learned in the video, cut off a length of thread you are comfortable working with, add a stopper bead, and begin the weaving making sure to leave a 2 foot tail. This pattern is random to create a fun mosaic look.
  2. As you work you will need to tie off and weave in your thread as seen in this video: How to Tie Off and Add New Thread in Peyote Bead Weaving.
  3. Continue weaving until you have reached your desired length. Note the clasp will add about 1/2 inch. To attach the clasp you can see an example in our video: How to Attach Tube Clasps to Peyote Bead Weaving. For this particular design, turn your thread around and move until your thread is coming out the second "up" bead in your final row. Add 6 beads and the loop of the clasp, and go into the fourth "up" bead. Then coming out the fourth bead add 6 more beads and the second loop of the clasp, and go into the sixth "up" bead. From here you can trace your thread back to reinforce the loops. Once you can done that, tie off and weave in your thread.
  4. Move to the other side and repeat the step above.
