The wave pattern came naturally while I was creating this bracelet. Of course I had to add a little steampunk touch with the clock and gears button!
When working with Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends, you can create gorgeous color patterns with ease. These Blends have the perfect combination of colors already mixed together so you can focus on the task at hand designing beautiful jewelry. Cynthia created a subtle wave pattern in this peyote stitch bracelet. Pick out your favorite Blend and start creating your own color patterns. You can see more inspiration for using some of our Seed Bead Blends in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Start an even-count peyote stitch bracelet by stringing 16 seed beads from the Artbeads Shibori Blue Designer Blend onto your thread. These beads will become the first two rows of eight in your peyote stitch bracelet. To learn how to create an even-count peyote stitch, take a look at our tutorial video with Leslie Rogalski. Continue the peyote stitch until the bracelet is the desired length. You can pick up beads at random, but we created a subtle 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!
