I learned to sew before I went to school. My mother, grandmother and aunt sewed everyday. I ran a needle through my right index finger early on, but have never done it again. I am self taught in many craft fields. My most recent is beadweaving. I think I have finally found my passion. I love the feel and look of tiny cylinder beads worked in peyote stitch into a wonderful mosaic of colorful design. Other beads and other stitches are interesting and lovely.,But beadwoven peyote is what I enjoy most.View all patterns by designer (30) »
I have wanted to do a design that looks like basket weaving for a while. This pattern is the result. The bracelet is 6 1/2 inches long without the clasp and 1 inch wide. Feel free to add edging if you wish. This pattern is designed for Delica beads. Other beads may result in different dimensions. It works up very quickly and is repetitive. You may find you don't need to check the chart very often. Just add or skip repetitions at the end to lengthen or shorten.
