Purple and Pink Peyote Stitch Bracelet with Gold Cymbal Accents
designed byCynthia Kimura
Approximate Size6 Inches
I like all of the trendy shapes that are part of this design.
Cymbal components work perfectly with Miyuki round seed beads in this bracelet to create a fashionable look. Cynthia incorporated Cymbal bead substitutes and endings that complement the fun chevron pattern of the peyote stitch focal. To add length, she added chain to each end. The result is an adorable bracelet you'll want to wear again and again.
Start the first two rows of odd-count peyote stitch with seven Miyuki 8/0 round seed beads in fuchsia-lined aqua luster . Start the rows where indicated on the PDF Diagram and follow the color pattern, making sure to add the Cymbal Livari 24K gold-plated bead substitute were indicated at the center of the stitch. Continue the stitch until you are on the last row before the decrease.
To add the decrease, position your thread so that it is coming out of the last bead on your full row. Weave through the beads so that your thread is coming through the other side of this bead, to the inside of the stitch. Add a bead, go through the next bead in the last row, add a bead, go through the next bead in the last row, add a bead, and go through the next bead in the last row. Weave through the beads in your stitch so that your thread is coming through the other side of this bead, to the inside again. Bring your thread up through the last bead on the row you just added.
Add a bead, and go through the next bead in the last row. Add a bead and go through the next bead in the last row. Weave through the beads so that your thread is coming through the other side of this bead, to the inside again. Add the Cymbal Sitia 24K gold-plated bead ending and go through the next bead in the last row. Weave your thread back into the beads to secure and trim.
Use tail or start a new thread at the other end of your peyote stitch and repeat steps 2 and 3 to make a decrease on this end.
Cut a length of 3mm gold-plated wheat chain approximately 1 ¼-inch long. You want to cut the chain so that only one link remains on each end, for easily attaching jump rings. Attach this chain to the bead ending on your peyote strip using a gold-filled 14K 3.9mm open jump ring. Repeat this step for the other end of the bracelet.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
