(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Bubboo

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • peyote stitch
  • tubular herringbone

Pattern Description:

Intersperse bubbly peyote sections in a herringbone rope without having to join separate pieces as the stitching direction changes.

Using two sizes of seed beads to make a gently undulating herringbone rope, pump it up, way up, by using bigger seed beads in double-layer peyote sections, smoothly switching back to tubular herringbone. The large beads are especially effective in transparent and iridescent finishes, evoking the look of an explosion of bubbles.

Make your necklace or bracelet monochromatic, or give it some zing by using a contrasting color palette.
