My “4 Days” Peyote Cuff Bracelet

Now, don’t laugh. It takes time to create!! It is frustrating at times. Exhausting even. But when the beads line up correctly, it is emotionally rewarding.

Usually I start off with somewhat of an idea. Then it develops as I go.

Shortly into making this peyote bracelet, I started seeing three layers connected to a beautiful 3-strand sterling silver barrel tube clasp. I couldn’t see beyond that. Hence, the extra time trying to make it work.

It didn’t.

Sorry, I don’t have all the photos to support all the LOOKS I ended up with when it was 3 layers. Or when it was moving down to two. I guess I was too disappointed.

Here is what I ended up with. One layer. Or strand, if you can call it that.

A bit of stringing wire to go with my diagonal peyote beadwork.

Added a button closure and a few beads as dangling charms.

Not bad, for 4 days!!

    I like how the dangles pass under the button closure. And of course I love the color scheme.
    It’s a pity if something didn’t work. I have a beautiful color scheme of seeds sitting on my table and CAN’T find the right stitch for it to make the colors work.

    Makes me think of our wooded spool pin cushion. I don’t remember how to do the peyote maybe you could show us again how do that.

    The bracelet turned out very handsome looking.

    Of course it takes time to create!
    I find your bracelet beautiful and find it such a good idea how you connected the ‘elements’.
    Thank you for sharing!
