Peyote Fringe Bracelet - Jewellery Making Tutorial

Designed by: Joanne

Difficulty: Intermediate

Rating:

Now that you have mastered the Peyote Stitch, you might be looking for different ways to add to or finish off your pieces. In this tutorial we will show you a couple of ways to add a little flourish to a Peyote Bracelet with a Beaded Fringe.
Fringes can be adapted in many ways. You can use co-ordinating or contrasting beads, larger or smaller and as many or as few as you want. It is all about personalisation so don't be afraid to experiment.
This tutorial also includes 2 different Even Count Peyote patterns for you to experiment with.

I have been playing with BeadTool4 again. It really is very easy to whip up a quick pattern and I recommend it to anyone who likes to make original designs. The 2 patterns I created for this tutorial were ready to go within 20 mins each! I hope you enjoy experimenting with these and we look forward to seeing your own versions. Ready? Lets Stitch! Joanne x

Materials needed:
Size 11 TOHO™ Rounds - 2 different colours - TR
Half Tila Beads - HT
3mm Firepolish Beads - FP
Clasp - I chose a magnetic one. Remember you will need a jump or split ring if you use a Lobster Clasp
Needle - size 10
Beading Thread - Miyuki or TOHO One-G™  thread in a colour closest to your beads.
Scissors
Bead Board or Tray

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 for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List' or Bead Legend.

Step 1

If you need instruction or a quick refresher, here is a great Sarah Millsop video tutorial: 'Odd and Even Count Peyote' to help you. This particular tutorial uses Even Count Peyote.

Step 1

Step 2

Once you have mastered the peyote stitch, download the bead chart and pattern for the Jet design HERE

Step 1

Step 3

Or download the bead chart and pattern for the Topaz design HERE

Step 1

Step 4

Once you have reached your desired length of strap (allowing approx 30mm for clasp), secure your threads and trim. Instruction for securing your thread can be found HERE if needed.

Step 5

Now to make the Beaded Fringe, cut a good arm span (approx 1m) of thread and work in.
(Help with this can be found HERE)

Following the thread path, pass through beads until your thread exits the very end bead on any side.

Pick up 1 x FP and 1 x TR

Step 1

Step 6

Bypass the TR just added, pass back down through the FP and the TR on the strap.

Step 1

Step 7

Skipping a TR on the strap, pass up through the second TR. Pull the thread tight enough for the thread to settle between the beads, but not so tight to make the strap pucker. It needs to remain flat.

Step 1

Step 8

Pick up 1 x FP & 1 x TR

Step 1

Step 9

Bypass the TR just added, pass back down through the FP and the TR on the strap.

Continue adding beads in this manner along the entire length of the strap (one side only) until you reach the end.

Step 1

Step 10

Ensure your thread is exiting the last bead on the strap.

Pick up 4 x TR, 1 half of the clasp and 4 x TR. 

Step 1

Step 11

Pass through the last bead of the strap on the opposite side.

Step 1

Step 12

Follow the thread path in a circle a couple of times to reinforce the clasp.

Ensure your thread exits the last bead on the side of the strap with no fringe.

Step 1

Step 13

Pick up 1 x HT and 3 x TR

Step 1

Step 14

Pass through the 2nd hole of the HT bead and down through the next TR along on the strap.

The 3 x TR beads will form a tiny triangle above the HT bead. This is called a Picot Edge.

Step 1

Step 15

Do not skip any beads on the straps this time and pass up through the next TR along on the strap.

Step 1

Step 16

Pick up 1 x HT and 3 x TR

Step 1

Step 17

Pass through the 2nd hole of the HT bead and down through the next TR along on the strap.

Continue adding beads in this manner until you reach the end of the strap.

Add the other half of the clasp in the same manner as before. Secure your threads and trim.

Step 1

Step 18

The full Jet pattern will make a finished bracelet 19.5cm long

Step 1

Step 19

You can of course add more, or indeed less to different effect.

Here I have added a Picot Edge to one side and alternated between HTL beads with a Picot Edge and a FP bead on the other.

The full Topaz pattern will make a finished bracelet 18 cm long

Beads used for the Topaz design: W2313, HTL0251, W1182 & U9125
