Carrier beads are the perfect shape for covering with a peyote stitch band, but they are also really pretty on their own. I showcased them in both ways in this bracelet.

  • Instructions
  • Supplies

Czech glass carrier beads are two-hole beads that are rectangular in shape and can be covered with peyote stitch bands. This allows you to enhance your jewelry designs with custom colors and patterns. Cheri added a TOHO Treasure seed bead peyote band to the carrier bead at the center of her bracelet and left the rest bare to show off their natural color, which is just as beautiful! You'll love playing with these unique beads in your jewelry designs.
