Beautiful bracelet. I've been making some of these tube beads and wondering how I could best use them. Now I know I want to make a bracelet similar to your bracelet. Thank you!

NEED VIDEO!
This is a gorgeous bracelet but I am one of those people that needs visual directions as opposed to reading them. I can't grasp the directions as well as when I watch a video. I give the rating a 4 star because it's a stunning bracelet. Hopefully one day there will be a video to go with it so I can attempt this awe inspiring piece.

This video shows you how to create those beautiful peyote stitch tube beads: Even Count Peyote Stitch Tube Beads.

Peyote Bead Tubes Are So Easy!!
Because I have been following Karla''''s videos for a very long time, this was one of my very first attempts at beadweaving. It took me a couple of tries to make these bead tubes, but with the help of Auntie''''s Beads Videos I was able to master it!! Over the years I have made many projects with the bead tube, including this bracelet!

peyote tube bracelet
This bracelet was my very first beading project. With the help of Karla''''s video, my bracelet came out beautiful. Karla''''s videos are the best, great instructions, from threading fireline,beading, clasps, crimps, and finishing the project. Thank you all for such a great resource and great online store. I am now hooked on learning jewelry making!!! June
