Let's see what miracle Edyta Rogowska can help you this time! In this tutorial Edyta will show you how to make a peyote stitch bracelet with Toho Treasure beads. It may take a little longer to make it and use a few more beads, but isn't it worth it?! Anyway, not a single minute devoted to the beloved needlework is lost. It pays off with beautiful jewellery. To work! 

Materials needed;

Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Please note that the colours and products illustrated in the images above do NOT match the 'Products List'.  The product list does not contain the optional materials.

Step 1

Tip:

To make a 15-16cm long bracelet you will need about 3m of thread. If you are scared of sewing on such a long thread, you can easily use a shorter thread, and when the thread ends, tie a new one

Step 1 

Thread 15 TT beads on a thread of about 3m, in order 5 graphite, 4 nickel, 6 graphite.

We slide the beads on the thread, leaving a "tail" of about 20 cm, which will be used later to attach the bracelet clasp. We take 1 TT bead and insert the needle into the second bead on the thread.

We add one graphite bead (4 in total) every other bead

Step 1

Step 4

Step 2

When the thread comes out of the second nickel bead, take two TT nickel and go through the third nickel bead on the thread. Thanks to this, we will give our work the shape of the letter "V"

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

The thread comes out of the third nickel bead. Now we add one graphite bead every other bead on the strand again (3 in total). The thread should come out of the last bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 4

We come back repeating the same steps.

Add one graphite bead between those sticking out from the previous row (4 in total)

When the thread comes out of the nickel bead on the top, add two nickel beads and go through the nearest nickel bead (without missing any bead)

Add one graphite bead between those sticking out from the previous row (3 in total). We finish when the thread comes out of the penultimate protruding bead 

Now, when you look at the work, one side is longer, but don't worry about it at all. It's supposed to be like that. As the rows progress, this unevenness will cease to be noticeable. And at the end of the work, we will try to even out this additionally.

The thread comes out of the penultimate bead. We go back, again adding one graphite bead between those sticking out of the previous row (total 4) 

at the top we add two nickel beads

then add one graphite between the protruding from the previous row (3 in total) and finish when the thread comes out of the penultimate protruding bead 

We make all the following rows analogously 

If the work is to be single-colour, repeat the steps until our bracelet is the desired length. Then we proceed to fasten the fastener (steps 7 and 8). However, if it is to have several colours, as in our case, then at the right moment we simply start adding beads of a different colour.

To make the work symmetrical, the colour is changed when the number of beads sticking out on both sides of the work is the same (in our case it is 5)

So we are counting. 

If there are fewer beads on one side, it means that we have to make one more row.

Change the colour to frozen silver and add the beads in the same way as in step 4, until the rows are the same as in graphite. Leave the nickel beads and add them as before.

Step 6

The thread comes out of the penultimate protruding silver bead (marked in red), so we change the colour and continue working with light grey beads 

For the 15.5 cm long bracelet, we change the colours two more times. 

When adding the last row to the top of the TT nickel, add only one TR 15/0 bead of the same colour. Attach the clasp to it.

Step 7

We proceed to attach the clasp.

When we have added the last bead, we pass the thread between the beads to the top TR 15/0 

We put the Clasp on the ring. We thread the prepared clasp and 5 TR15/0 nickel beads and insert the bead from which the thread comes out, but on the other side, close the beads in a circle. We pass two or three more times through all the beads to strengthen the "handle" of the clasp 

Make a knot between the beads, pass the thread under the beads, as far as possible from the knot, and cut off the excess.

Step 8

We put the needle on the "tail" left on the other side of the work.

To align both sides of the bracelet, take one TT bead in graphite colour and go through the bead next to it. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 9

We pass the thread between the beads to the first pair of TT nickel.

Take one bead TR15 / 0 and connect all three together so that the thread comes out of the newly added bead.

Attach an adjusting chain to the ring (optional). As before, we thread the ring and 5 TR15 / 0 nickel beads and go through, from the other side, into the bead from which the thread comes out. We go through all the beads two or three more times. We make a knot, pass the thread under the beads and cut off the excess.
