About This Project

I love the hand of this bracelet woven in a 2-Drop Peyote with 11/0 Miyuki seed beads! It looks like a tapestry of the Surf and Sand and I added a Sea Horse toggle to complete the oceanic feel!

  1. View the 2-Drop Peyote Stitch Instructional Video for a how to on 2-drop peyote stitch.
  2. Cut a 1yd piece of Fireline or longer, what ever you are comfortable working with, you will need to tie in a couple of times.
  3. String on a stop bead. To string a stop bead, pick up a bead and pass needle and thread through the bead in the same direction so that the thread wraps around the bead.
  4. Pick up 20 seed beads and let them slide down the thread to the stop bead.
  5. Pick up two seed beads; skip the last two beads strung and pass through the next two beads, going back towards the stop bead.
  6. Continue to pick up two beads, skip two beads, and pass through the next two beads until you reach the end of the row.
  7. Continue to pick up beads and pass through the beads that are jutting out from the previous row. You will be filling in the gaps with beads as you stitch.
  8. To turn at the end of each row, simply pick up two beads and pass through the beads you just stitched into place. You may have to hold on to your working thread to keep your tension so as not to allow the work to loosen up.
  9. I used the Surf and Sand Mix, so pick up your colors at random.
  10. As mentioned you will need to add thread a couple of times, so be sure to secure your working thread by working it back through the stitches, half hitch knotting a couple of times. Add the thread in the same manner careful to end up where you stopped.
  11. It takes about 117 rows to make 6 1/2" and then the clasp to complete the length at 7 1/2".
  12. To add the clasp, re-enforce the last two rows by tracing the thread back through the previous stitches out the second "UP" bead, string on 7 to 8 seed beads run the thread through the loop end of the toggle, add 3 more seed beads, run the thread back throuh the 4 seed bead, so both threads are through it and add 3 more seed beads, secureing by running the thread back through the top two rows and the string of beads of the toggle loop and half hitch knot a couple of times with in the work.
  13. For the bar part of the toggle repeat above step!

Classic
Just returned from a San Diego vacation and this bracelet reminds me of my walks on the beach. All I need is a sunset and an ocean breeze. :-). May try it again with other mixes. Basic beginner project, but with stunning results.

Adaptable Design
Great bracelet! I used the Spring Flowers Mix and the Hummingbird Clasp for a different but equally cool look.

Surf and Sand Flat Even Count 2-Drop Peyote Bracelet Project
I just finished this project using the 8/0 Miyuki Seed Bead Mix, Surf and Sand. Since the size ratio of 8/0 to 11/0 beads is about 8:10, I used 16 of 8/0 seed beads for each row instead of the 20 11/0 beads. (I am a retired math teacher) The bracelet looks great. I think the 8/0 beads were easier for me to use as a beginner with Peyote. Also the video was very helpful. I also used the Seahorse Toggle which I love. Thank you Karla for your designs and videos.

Questions and Answers

Q: Is there a video showing how to add the clasp? I'm having trouble figuring it out from the written instructions and I couldn't find a video. Thanks.
Asked by: Peggy - 10/4/2014
A: No it appears that I have made them all with button closures. It is much like making the loop for the button closure. That may help to watch that to understand what I am saying about coming out of the "up" beads,etc. Karla
