I love to make layered bracelets, because they give you the look of a stack of bracelets, but you just have one piece to keep track of in your jewelry box. You can add as many or as few strands as you like by choosing different sized end caps. I’ll show you as we go where you can make adjustments to change the style of this bead bracelet.

What I like best about these beads is that you mix 2 contrasting stars and stripes designs by rolling a narrower strip on top of a wider strip. This makes the beads really stand out. If you don’t want to do a stars and stripes design, you can try this with any 2 designs such as 2 different types of scrapbooking paper. You can even do something from another holiday, your favorite sport team’s colors, or your school’s colors
There are many patterns available on this site. This is a page of free patterns which include several patriotic patterns.
I have been doing Peyote stitch for awhile now and I find it very helpful to enlarge the graph especially since my eyes are not what they used to be. Also they make these magnet boards you put the pattern on and move the magnet strip over each time you complete a row so what you see is always the current row you are working on. That is very helpful to keep your place as well. Once the pattern gets going you can usually see what comes next without much help at all. I can’t wait to make this beautiful bracelet!
