Texture with Fancy Drops

Miyuki Fancy Drop Peyote Stitch Bracelet

Miyuki’s color-lined fancy drops give this bracelet a cool optical effect – as you turn your wrist the color appears to change because the angle of the light hits the bead at a different place. Try your own version and admire the effect!

Fancy Drop Peyote Stitch Bracelet

You will be working in Peyote stitch for this project. If you haven't worked in it before or need a refresher on how to begin, check out our page on peyote stitch for instructions.

Step 1- Start flat peyote stitch with twelve 11/0 seed beads. Each following row you will add 6 beads.

Step 2- Begin randomly inserting the drops to create a textured surface. Continue until bracelet reaches desired length.

Step 3 – This bracelet is clasped using a snap sewn onto a tiny leather tab. It makes the closure point nearly invisible. Using a button or regular clasp would also work fine.
