INSTRUCTIONS
Modified peyote stitch bracelet 1
Figure 1

Base

1. On a comfortable length of thread, attach a stop bead, leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail.

2. Pick up a 5 mm rhinestone rondelle, six 3/0 seed beads, two rondelles, and a 3/0. Working in modified peyote stitch, sew back through the fifth 3/0 added (FIGURE 1, a–b). The rondelles will sit parallel to each other. Work two more peyote stitches using 3/0s, and sew through the first rondelle added (b–c).

3. Pick up a rondelle and a 3/0, and work a peyote stitch (c–d). Work two more peyote stitches using 3/0s, and continue through the next rondelle (d–e). 

4. Repeat step 3 until you have 29 rondelles along each edge. End and add thread as needed.

Edge embellishment

1. With your thread exiting the end rondelle, pick up a 4 mm crystal lochrosen and a 15/0 seed bead, and sew back through the lochrosen and rondelle (FIGURE 2, a–b). Continue through the next six 3/0s and the rondelle on the opposite edge of the base (b–c). 

2. Pick up a lochrosen and a 15/0, and sew back through the lochrosen and rondelle (c–d). Sew through the 3/0s to exit the next rondelle on the opposite side of the base (d–e). 

3. Repeat step 2 for the length of the bracelet, removing the stop bead before adding the embellishment to the end row. End and add thread as needed.

Clasp

1. Work in rows as follows using 8/0 seed beads:

Rows 1 and 2: Continuing with the working thread, work three peyote stitches using two 8/0s in place of a 3/0, and sewing through the end rondelle, lochrosen, and 15/0. Sew back through the lochrosen and rondelle (FIGURE 3, a–b). Work three more stitches using two 8/0s per stitch (b–c).

Row 3–5: Work three more rows using two 8/0s per stitch (FIGURE 4). End the working thread and tail.

2. The rows of 8/0s will fit into the slot of the 34 x 12 x 7 mm magnetic clasp. Apply E6000 adhesive into the slot of the clasp, and spread it evenly with a toothpick. Insert the 8/0s on the end of the beadwork, wiping away any excess glue. Set aside to dry.

3. When the glue is dry, add 18 in. (46 cm) of thread at the other end of the bracelet, and repeat steps 1 and 2.

Tip!
A WIDER VARIATION: Make a wider bracelet by starting the bracelet with eight 3/0s instead of six and using a 37 x 19 x 7 mm magnetic clasp.
