The freeform pattern in this bracelet created a fun look of mountains on the horizon. I used an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend, so I already had the perfect color combination.
Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends are wonderful options for freeform patterns like the one in this 2-drop peyote stitch bracelet. The colors work perfectly together, allowing you to pick up beads at random and see where your imagination takes you. See more inspiration for using Designer Seed Bead Blends in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Start an even-count 2-drop peyote stitch bracelet by stringing 12 seed beads from the Artbeads Honeybee Meadow Designer Blend onto your thread. These beads will become the first two rows of your bracelet. To learn how to create an even-count 2-drop peyote stitch, take a look at our video tutorial. Continue the 2-drop peyote stitch until the bracelet is the desired length. You can pick up beads at random, but we created a subtle freeform wave pattern in our bracelet by loosely grouping colors together throughout the rows.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
