Item details

This is a tutorial pattern in PDF format. You aren’t purchasing the bracelet with this listing.
Once you have made your payment I will send your tutorial to you via email.

I designed this bracelet as an example of how Spike, GumDrops, Twin and/or SuperDuo and Pressed Twin Beads can be used. The pattern uses GumDrop beads and includes variations for using Spike Beads and/or 6mm Swarovski Crystal pearls instead of GumDrop beads.

Techniques used in this pattern include Peyote Stitch, and Picot Stitch. This tutorial assumes that you know how to finish off your thread tails. I used half hitch knots and weaving of thread to finish ends of thread in this bracelet.

This Pattern is geared towards Advanced Beginner and Intermediate beaders. The instructions assume that you are versed in Peyote Stitch. If you need a refresher on how to do peyote stitch you can Google on “How do I weave using Peyote Stitch”. We will also be embellishing the edges using a form of Picot Stitch (directions included). This tutorial includes 88 step by step photos and is 34 pages in length.

Techniques: Sewing, Peyote stitch, Picot Stitch
Skill level: Advanced beginners to Intermediate

Beads used: Czech Twin Beads (2 colors), Japanese Seed Beads sizes 11/0, 8/0, 15/0 (2 colors), 11/0 Delicas and Czech Bohemian GumDrop beads.
Other supplies: Fireline 8lb. test or WildFire or PowerPro 10 lb. test, 21mm Tube Slide Clasp with 3 strand attachments, 12/0 and 13/0 needles, scissors or Thread burner (Thread Zap).

If you don't know where to find them, I sell Czech Twin Beads, SuperDuos and Pressed Twins, Spikes and GumDrop beads on my BeadsToWeave Etsy site: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BeadsToWeave

I encourage you to come up with your own color scheme for your bracelet so that you can make it more your own, but have included the colors that I used on my demo bracelet for those who need color assistance. If you can’t find one of my colors, substitute with something that you have in your stash or ask me. I may be able to find it for you.
