Intarsia Peyote Stitch Bracelet
Go beyond the usual with this Intarsia Peyote Stitch Bracelet. It's a great step-by-step tutorial to put your bead weaving skills to the test or to master the flat peyote stitch technique. With its gorgeous beaded design, this DIY bracelet has that complicated look and feel of its expensive store-bought sisters. However, you can say you created this piece of DIY jewelry all on your own! If you've never had the feel of a peyote stitch cuff on your wrist, this is an excellent seed bead pattern to try it out for the first time.

Thread a needle with 5 feet of beading thread (add new thread as needed). Use flat peyote stitch to weave the pattern shown (download PDF for enlarged chart).
When the bracelet reaches the desired length, loop one end of the flat peyote piece through the bar on one side of the tube bar clasp. Weave the thread in and out between beads on the end row and beads in the base of the bracelet. Weave back down through a few rows, and use a Perfect End Thread Burner to burn the end of the thread.
Repeat Step 2 on the other end of the bracelet.
