Count down the days to Christmas with this adorable bracelet! Becky created peyote stitch scenes for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas using TOHO Aiko precision cylinder seed beads and stitched them around Czech glass carrier beads. The peyote stitch bands can move around each Carrier bead, so you can display the numbers and turn them to display each scene as it gets closer to Christmas.
