Celtic knots have always fascinated me in their intricacies. Celtic symbols are challenging to do in bead work - and I like challenges. This is a tutorial for how to make an odd count peyote bracelet in the pattern shown. It does not include the instructions on how to do the odd-count peyote stitch. There are some wonderful, free tutorials on the Internet if you do not know the stitch. I've listed this as an beginning-intermediate pattern but it is fairly easy if you know how to do the peyote stitch. If you want to attach the bracelet to a brass cuff blank, you will just shorten the pattern as instructed. The instructions are for a 1.5" x 7" bracelet. This bracelet is fun to wear and has 19 colors so it matches a lot of things. I used Delica cylinder beads so it has a very soft feel when finished. It is very comfortable to wear. Never tried a pattern like this? Give it a try. You'll be pleased with the result. Slainte Mhath! Nia Roo
At times we are glass workers, silversmiths, beaders, chainmaille-makers, wire-wrappers, teachers, woodworkers, photographers, and more. It depends on the day.
A couple of years ago we decided that we were tired of doing our art part-time. It was time to strike out on our own, thus the birth of Nia Roo Designs.
