Seven sisters rose bracelet

Stitch this beautiful peyote stitch rose bracelet using 11/0 cylinder beads.

The inspiration for this bracelet was a Valentine’s Day card given to my grandmother in 1912. This memento of a bygone era was edged with lovely pale pink roses and must have been very special to her to have survived 100 years. Looking at the card, I was also reminded of the seven sisters rosebush in my mother’s garden and the heady fragrance of the wild roses that grew by the mailbox.

I wanted to bring the past and the present together in a representative way, so I combined the Victorian style of the card, its cream background, and rose motif with a crewel-work embroidery look in the leaves, buds, and stems.

Stitched in flat even-count peyote stitch using 11/0 cylinder beads, this bracelet measures 7¼ x 1¼ in. (18.4 x 3.2 cm) not including the clasp.
