You are purchasing an odd count peyote digital pattern....NOT THE ITEM IN THE PHOTO!!
Knowledge of odd count peyote is needed as no instructions for this stitch are given within the pattern.
I so love color! I love sewing it; painting it; drawing it; cooking with it and of course, beading with it. In this design, I take color to new heights when I blend them in various ways. Here are some of my BLENDED MUSINGS.
Note to self: I must make a quilt like this. I can see it now....
I always use 4lb Fire Line fishing line to stitch; a long, size 12 beading needle; size 11/0 Delica beads.
For the optional PICOT trim, I used Miyuki size 15/0 seeds in GALVANIZED SILVER, #15-1051.
I used 19 different DELICA bead colors for a total of 1871 beads! There are 19 columns and 199 rows.
The finished size of BLENDED MUSINGS bracelet is 6 3/4 inches by 1 1/8 wide, which includes the optional trim.
If you need to lengthen your bracelet, continue using DELICA #1151, at each end until you have reached your desired length.
THE CHALLENGE: Managing all those beads. My trick, is to only get out the beads that you will use in each section (section being, between the silver DELICAS). I kept DELICA #1151 in my beading tray at all times, while just getting out the ones needed in each section! HOPE this helps!

Within the pattern you will find full color photos of the finished piece; a DELICA bead legend (listing of colors used); a view of the pattern in REAL TIME; a full color graph large enough to read easily and a WORD CHART of the bracelet pattern. Up close photos of how I work the trim. Six very COLORFUL pages await you in this pdf download. you once your payment is received.
I don't mind if you make these bracelets to sell, but please give me the credit for the design within your listing of your finished piece. I would greatly appreciate it.
