Desert Rose Dual-Wear Bracelet
Designed by: Chloe Menage
Difficulty: No level set
Pick up 32 x size 11 seed beads, join in a circle by passing through the first few beads added.
Peyote a row of size 15 seed beads and step up.
Work through the piece to exit from the outer row of size 11s. Place the stone in face up and hold in place with your thumb as you work.
Repeat Step 8 around to add size 15s all the way around. Step up through one of the size 15s along the edge.
Peyote 2 size 15s. At the corner, pick up 3 size 15s, pass into the next 15 after the pair of Solo beads. Repeat around and reinforce if necessary to draw the bezel in.
Pick up a size 11, pass into the bead added in the previous step. Pass down into the next bead in the row below, pick up 1 bead, pass to the bead just exited, then back through the bead just added. This will get you in position to start the next row.Pick up a size 11 and pass into the next bead.
Repeat Step 16 (odd count peyote) to create a strap 3 beads wide. Stop when you have 9 beads on each outer edge.
Pass through the next 2 Solo beads, and repeat Step 20 until your bracelet is the desired length. Alternating every set of three – passing through 3 Solo beads instead of 2 will help give your bracelet some wavy shaping.
For the clasp – pick up 7 x size 15 beads, then 5 Solos, create a flower as before, reinforcing, then pass back down the 7 x size 15 beads. Pass around the next flower and then work your way back up to the clasp and around one more time to reinforce. Work into the bracelet and work your way all the way through the bracelet.
Pass around the first flower and then back through the toggle loop to reinforce. Repeat once more, then work your thread through the bracelet. Create a half hitch knot, pass through some more beads then trim.
