San Antonio Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Beautiful beads of all shapes come together to create an unforgettable bracelet. A fiery peyote stitch band is decorated with edges featuring Tila beads, SuperUnos and Delicas. Learn how to make this bracelet and see how different beads work together in amazing ways!

Step one
Start your bracelet by creating a peyote stitch with the TOHO 8/0 bead rounds in color-lined copper/crystal. Use this PDF to help you start your peyote stitch. If you need more instruction, check out our Mini Tutorial video and our Handy Tip. Start the peyote stitch with six beads on your thread, as your bracelet will have six beads in each row. Continue the peyote stitch until your bracelet is the desired length.
Step two
Step three
Now we are going to add decorative edges to the bracelet. Take your needle through the second seed bead on the edge of the peyote band. Add one Miyuki 5mm metallic emerald rainbow tila square tube bead, one Miyuki 11/0 Duracoat galvanized silver Delica, one SuperUno Czech glass turquoise green with Picasso bead and another Delica to the thread. Bring your needle back through the second hole of the Tila bead and through the third seed bead on the edge of the peyote band.
Step four
Step five
Sew a 15.5mm antique copper-plated pewter zigzag and dots pattern round button onto one end of the bracelet. Weave your thread through the peyote band so that it is exiting out of the center bead at the other end of your bracelet. Add 19 TOHOs to your thread and create a loop by bringing your thread through the other side of the center bead. Check the loop with the button to make sure it keeps your bracelet clasped. Reinforce the loop by bringing your thread through the beads several times. Secure your thread by weaving it into the bracelet.
Go up through the next bead on the edge of the peyote band and repeat the techniques from steps two and three. Repeat until you reach the end of the bracelet and add the decorative beads to the other side of the peyote band, as well.
