I enjoy working up this simple odd-count peyote stitch bracelet so much that I’ve made it many times. I start at the top of the charted pattern and work down, continuing the pattern with no break in the black-bead branching. After stitching the bracelet to the desired length, I finish it with two rows of cream-colored beads, just as I started with the first two rows. You may want to embellish the edges with 15/0s and cylinders and use 516-in. (8 mm) buttons with beaded loops for the clasp, as I did.
