More like a buffet!! Picking and choosing. Can’t have it all. Some of this will be a necklace.

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.

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.

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