Please watch the video on Even Count Peyote if you are not familiar with the stitch:
Start with the longest amount of Fireline you are comfortable working with, about 6' is a good start, and thread a needle on one end.
Add a stop bead to the end, leaving about a 10" tail.
Following the pattern, work the dark areas in the 6/0 Black and the white areas in the S/l Matte Crystal.
My first attempt at the pattern and the pattern pictured will work up to be about 7 3/4" in finished length, about 6" in length of the actual beaded length, if you desire it to be shorter, remove a row from each end, longer add a row.
After you are satisfied with the length of the cuff, subtracting the clasp measurement, tie off the tail ends with a couple of half hitch knots within a few rows of the work. I liked to reinforce the ending rows, since some stress will be on them with the clasp connection.
Open a 6mm jump ring and run it through the second bead on the first row, then one through the third and fourth.
Attach the clasp to the first 6mm jump ring with two 4mm jump rings each and so on for the remain two jump rings.
Repeat the jump ring application for the other end of the bracelet to complete the bracelet.

I finished this bracelet last week for my daughter. It is beautiful. Karla's video and instructions were just what I needed to learn to make the bracelet. I ordered these materials again to make another one to donate to a Cancer Center Charity Auction.
