INSTRUCTIONS

Peyote band 

1. Using a comfortable length of conditioned thread, start at point a on section 1 of FIGURE 1. Leave a 10-in. (25cm) tail, and work in flat, even-count peyote

2. Following the pattern, work 22 rows and exit at point b. Do not cut the thread.

3. From point b, continue working in flat, even-count peyote to make column 1. Secure the thread and trim the tail.

4. Secure a new thread and, starting at point c, work column 2 as you did column 1. Secure the thread and trim the tail.

5. Starting at point d, repeat step 4.

6. Work section 2 as you did section 1. Do not cut the thread at the end of section 2.

7. Align the flowers in section 2 with the three columns. Using the existing thread, join each column to section 2 as shown in FIGURE 2, a–b. Maneuver through the beads to reach the starting points for the second and third columns (b–c and d–e).



 

Embellish the band

1. Start a thread near the base of column 3. Exit at FIGURE 3, point a, and follow the thread path to add 11/0 seed beads in the channel between columns 2 and 3. Secure the thread and trim the tail.

2. Starting at point b, add 11/0s in the other channel between columns 1 and 2.

3. For the lace trim, start a new thread at point c. Pick up one color C cylinder bead, skip one thread bridge on the edge, and go under the next (c–d). Repeat on both long edges of the band.


 

Attach the clasps

1. Secure a new thread at any corner and exit between the first and second up-beads in the end row (FIGURE 3, point e). Sew through a 3mm soldered jump ring and back through a nearby bead in the end row (e–f). Go back through the ring and the beads several times to reinforce the connection. Secure the thread and trim the tail. 

2Open a 5mm jump ring, and slide it through the 3mm soldered ring. Attach a clasp half (PHOTO A), then close the jump ring. 

3. Repeat on all four corners.
