DIY How can I make a 2 drop peyote bracelet?

Hi There.....Are you creative? 

I am way too creative for my own good.....There is not enough time for me to do all the things I love to do. 

At the moment I am most into beading and since I haven't done so before.....I thought this might be a great time to share a beading pattern with you 😊

Pattern 2 drop peyote (18 cm or 7.09 inch)

It is best to use Toho or Miyuki beads size 11 to get the best results

You'll need a slide clasp that is approximately the same width, or slightly more narrow than your bracelet band.

  1. Pick up a bead and go through it again to make a knot. This will be your stop bead. 

  2. Pick up another 11 beads so that you have 12 in total (stop bead included).
    This will be your first row, and you now are starting your second row. 

  3. Pick up 2 beads and pass your needle through the 3rd and 4th bead of the first row.

  4. Pick up 2 beads and pass your needle through the 7th and 8th bead of the first row. Pick up 2 beads and pass your needle through the 11th and 12th bead of the first row (as shown on the image below).
  5. The second row is ready now and you are starting the 3rd row now. 

  6. Pick up 2 beads and pass your needle through the 3rd and 4th bead of the second row.

  7. Pick up 2 beads and pass your needle through the 7th and 8th bead of the second row.

  8. Pick up 2 beads and pass your needle through the 11th and 12th bead of the second row. (as shown in the image below).
  9. Repeat this pattern until you have a length of 16.5 cm or 6.50 inch. Make sure to always pull tight your wire to get nice and even beadwork. 

  10. Attach the slide clasp by picking up 2 beads and pass through the first metal ring on the clasp from front to back. Pick up another 2 beads and pass through the 3rd and 4th bead of your end row (as shown on the image below).
  11. Pick up 2 beads and go through the second metal ring on the clasp from front to back. 

  12. Pick up another 2 beads and pass through the 7th and 8th bead of your end row. 

  13. Pick up 2 beads and go through the third metal ring on the clasp from front to back.

  14. Pick up another 2 beads and pass through the 11th and 12th bead of your end row.
    Make sure to pull your wire tight to make the closure fit tight. (as shown in the image below).
  15. Pass through these last beads and metal rings again in the opposite direction to make sure the thread is secure. 

  16. Attach the clasp on the other end the same way you did on the first end of the bracelet. 
And finished.....It's that simple 😋
