This Peyote stitch bead bracelet is simple even count Peyote and can be made with seed beads or delicas. So, it’s perfect for any level. Let me tell you more…
You are going to need either seed beads or Cylinder beads for this project. (If you’re not sure what Cylinder beads are, then check out this blog post).
My sample is made using size 11/0 seed beads. I have included my exact colours within the pattern, but I also encourage you to design your own colour scheme. So, I’ve given you some help with that.
With 11/0 beads, the finished width is a little over 2″ (5cm). If you wanted a chunkier look, you can also make this with larger seed beads or 10/0Delicas.
You will also need your favourite beading thread, and a clasp of your choice.
I decided to use the Cymbal Elements(TM) bead endings for my bracelet. So, I have given you full details of those in the tutorial. If you want some other clasp options, then check out this link.

About the Peyote Stitch Bead Bracelet Polka Dot Pattern
I love designing Peyote stitch bracelets, and it seems that you love making them! So, this polka dot pattern is actually inspired by one of my favourite outfits.
I created a design that mimics the material of the outfit. Then, I’ve taken my colour scheme from the same material.
However, this will work in any colour scheme. So, I can’t wait to see what other options you all come up with. If you’re happy to have your work seen by other beaders, then do send me a photo of your version of this design. I love seeing what you all create!
