2014 August 25

There is nothing like the look and feel of a flat peyote stitch bracelet, whether it’s a geometric pattern or flowers, etc. But you can do so much more with peyote stitch. You can make triangles. Or use 3D sculptural to make little people, animals, flowers, etc. Even with flat peyote you can change colors and sizes of beads. Learn the basics and work your way up!

Today, we are going to learn about beaded beads. What could be better than a big bead made of little beads? Kind of like beads squared. Beaded beads make great pendants, earrings, part of a clasp or link them together into a bracelet. Try some of these this weekend.

I had the urge to make some beaded beads.  I found a very good tutorial on You Tube. They are actually quite easy once you get the hang of it.  I was doing great until I decided to try to add drops.  For some reason the drops confused me enough I had to go re-watch the video. The spheres with drops ended up being my favorites and I think I’m going to make more.

So I’m really excited to share today’s project with you, because it’s a blend of everything I love to make.  It’s a woven bracelet tutorial that’s tool-free (aside from scissors and glue).  It’s got stone chip beads.  And it looks SO much more fussy than it really is.  If you can braid and string beads, you can make this, my new favorite accessory.  In fact, if ever there was a tutorial that was inherently me, you’re reading it now.

I’ve come up with something that lays relatively flat but still looks similar to LiriGal’s bracelet. I also wasn’t happy with the plain edge on LiriGal’s so I embellished mine. I’ll try to describe what I did below. I added numbers to LiriGal’s pattern so you’ll know which steps I’m referring to.
