Frosted Blush Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The colors in the Chambray Blush Artbeads Designer Blend bring together soft and sophisticated blue with sweet rose gold. Cynthia used these seed beads in a random pattern for the body of her peyote stitch bracelet, but then added a shining picot edge using only the rose gold beads. As this bracelet shows, whether you mix and match the colors or separate them out, Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend are wonderful options for your designs. Discover more inspiration for using Artbeads Designer Blends in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Start an even-count peyote stitch bracelet by stringing ten seed beads from the Artbeads Chambray Blush Designer Blend onto your thread. These beads will become the first two rows of five in your peyote stitch bracelet. To learn how to create an even-count peyote stitch, take a look at this Tutorial Video with Leslie Rogalski. Continue the peyote stitch until the bracelet is the desired length.

Step two:
Weave your thread through the bracelet so that it is exiting out of the last edge bead on one side. String three rose gold seed beads onto the thread. Bring your needle down through the next edge bead over and then up through the next edge bead after that. Continue adding rose gold beads in this manner until you reach the end of your bracelet. Weave your thread to the other edge of the bracelet (or add a new thread if necessary) and repeat this step.

Step three:
Position your thread so that it is coming out of a center seed bead a few rows down from the end of your bracelet. Stitch the Czech glass 18mm round jewel spiral green with blue wash glass button onto your bracelet. Loop through the button shank and the seed beads several times for a secure hold. Secure and trim your thread.

Step four:
Add a new thread to the other end of your bracelet and position it so that it is coming out of the second seed bead in the last row. Add 26 seed beads to the thread and then go through the third seed bead over from the other side. Go through this loop of beads several times to reinforce. Secure and trim your thread.
