Basic Skills Necessary:

  • peyote stitch
  • ability to bead firmly
  • "zip" peyote edges together

Pattern Description:

For those whose peyote is loosey-goosey, I'll tell you right now, your bracelet won't look quite like these pictures.

The key is tight, tight tension so that the fabric ripples in three dimensions instead of only two.

It's not hard (says she who could quite easily blister her fingers with thread so tight it almost cuts), but if it's not your natural steady state, this is great practise for tension control.

Although most of my students chose a single colour in each size, as you can see you can vary shades and finishes within a colour group, should you find yourself in the position of having sizeable collections with little to distinguish one from the other.

The closure is a toggle and buttonhole that sort of mimics the look of the toggle, so that it looks like a pair of toggles, and is pretty secure.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Less than an inch wide, or to suit
  • Length to fit your wrist


  • Size 11 seed beads, less than 10g
  • Size 8 seed beads, less than 10g

You Will Also Need:

  • magnifiers!
