Make a bracelet that works up quickly using 2-drop peyote stitch.
Use these clearly written instructions with full-color illustrations and two different colors of beads to make a 2-drop peyote bracelet. Instructions are included for the "Xanadu" geometric motif based on a Mongolian tribal design and an easier 2-drop peyote pattern in two colors (a border and a ground). The bracelet clasp is a matching peyote-stitched button with a loop fastener.
Finished size: 6.5 to 8 inches or desired length to fit your wrist Stitches used: 2-drop even-count peyote
This project is suitable for beginner and intermediate bead weavers. Every step is explained in detail and illustrated with full-color diagrams and photos.
