You are purchasing an odd count peyote digital pattern....NOT THE ITEM IN THE PHOTO!!
I am very proud of the fact that my family came from the Czech Republic. My Grandpa Reida taught me a lot of the "old country" as he would call it! I am enamored with the stories he would tell about the "GLASS MEN" who would create many wonderful items. Today, there are many artisans continuing with these works. This CZECH glass button is the inspiration for OLD WORLD GLASS!
I used size 11/0 Delica beads, 4lb Fire Line fishing line and a toggle bar and ring for the closure. For the optional PICOT trim I used Miyuki size 15/0 round seeds in galvanized yellow gold ( #15-1053). I also used 1-18mm Round Jewel Spiral Orange Iridescent with Turquoise Wash Czech Glass button and 4-2 hole Czech glass cabochons in BRONZE MR MA.
Full color photo tutorial on how I add the 2-hole glass cabochons.
To glue down the button, I used E-6000 flexible and transparent jewelry glue.
This pattern has 8 colors making 21 columns and 195 rows. There are 1872 beads in total.
The finished size of this bracelet is 6 1/2 inches long by 1 1/4 inches wide which includes the beaded PICOT trim. To lengthen this bracelet continue to work the design as established at each end.
Thank you Grandpa Reida for instilling in me the love of your home country! I love and miss you!
