You are purchasing an odd count peyote digital pattern....NOT THE ITEMS IN THE PHOTO!!
Knowledge of odd count peyote is needed as no instructions for this stitch are given within the pattern.
My Great-grandmother Maninger had a collection of Dutch Floral plates that she got from her local grocery by saving up stamps from each visit to purchase this set of dinnerware. I have such fond memories of these plates and it is one of the reasons why I love the color BLUE so much! I miss seeing those plates and even more, I miss my Grandma!
I always use 4lb Fire Line fishing line to stitch; a long, size 12 beading needle; size 11/0 Delica beads; size 15/0 seed beads for the trim and I chose to use a toggle bar and ring for the closure.
I used 6 different colors for a total of 1675 beads! There are 17 columns and 197 rows.
I have added a PEARL PICOT trim to the top and bottom of this bracelet. I used size 15/0 Miyuki round seeds in MATTE WHITE, #15-402F and (34) 2mm Fire Polish beads in SAPPHIRE IRIS LUSTER and (38) 2mm Fire Polish beads in BLUE IRIS. This trim is optional.
The finished size of OMBRE DUTCH FLORAL is 1 1/8 inches wide (which includes the trim) by 6 5/8 inches before adding the clasp.
If you need to lengthen to lengthen your bracelet, continue with the ombre stripes at each end until you have reached your desired length.
It was a thrill each week to go shopping at the grocery store with my Grandma. When she collected her stamps, I was the one who adhered them to her book. Gosh, the memories....
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. Photo of trim placement! Ten BEAUTIFUL BLUE pages await you in this pdf download.
This pattern is in the form of a PDF file, a digital pattern, that will be readily available to 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.
There are NO REFUNDS on digital files.
