At last, I’ve completed another pretty peyote stitch bracelet pattern! This one is called “Ombre Ribbons”!
Before I get into the details of the pattern though, you might have noticed things being a little quiet on the blog over the last couple of weeks. I’ve had a sudden increase in workload (I’m a freelance writer by day) and I also took a short break away with my family.
I’ll try and get things back to normal on here shortly as I’m still catching up with various things! Now back to the pattern!
As you know I like to use Miyuki Delicas for my beading patterns and this one is no different. I absolutely love the colours of teal and purple together, so I used these colours to create “ombre ribbons” in a criss-cross fashion for this bracelet. The ribbons are edged with gold delicas and set into a background of white delicas.
How to make the “Ombre Ribbons” peyote stitch beaded bracelet
The pattern uses a beadweaving technique called flat even count peyote stitch. If you’re new to this stitch, take a look at this tutorial I published here on the blog recently! It’s a fairly easy stitch to learn and you might end up getting a bit addicted to it!
Once you’ve learnt the stitch, you can find the pattern for this bracelet in my Etsy Shop here. It costs just £4.99 + VAT (where applicable) and all earnings from my pattern sales go towards keeping my blog up and running!
The bracelet, when made up, will measure around 5 and 3/4 inches in length and just under 1.5 inches in width. Once you’ve added a clasp, the bracelet will be longer – it should measure between 6.5 to 7 inches. If you need to make the bracelet longer or shorter you can alter the length by adding or decreasing a few rows of beadwork at each end – or just contact me for a custom pattern if you get stuck.
Upon purchasing this peyote pattern, you’ll receive the following:
Bead legend with colours and bead types used.
Bead chart (visual pattern).
Word chart (row by row).
Photo of the bracelet to show how it should look made up.
The pattern doesn’t include materials, unfortunately! But don’t worry if you’re struggling to find supplies – I’ve included links below (most of these are my affiliate links) to help you source what you need. In particular, check out the clasp parts I’ve recommended as I know that some of you like to use the same findings that are shown in the pics.
Here are the materials you’ll need!
- Miyuki Delicas Size 11/0 in six colours (specific colours with Miyuki codes are detailed in the pattern)
- Beading thread – I’ve used Miyuki beading thread in “Eggshell” and it is BRILLIANT! Hardly any tangles! You can also use a brand like Nymo too though.
- Beading needle in size 10 or 12
- For the clasp, I’ve used 35mm gold tone flat ribbon end findings like these with a toggle clasp and jump rings. If you’re using ribbon end findings, secure the beadwork into place with strong jewellery glue such as e6000.
- Last, but not least, you’ll need my “Ombre Ribbons” Beaded Bracelet Pattern
