Bracelet with Seed Beads

STEP 1
Using scissors cut a 3-yard length of FireLine. Add a stop bead to the FireLine, by looping through the stop bead 1 time, leaving a 7-inch tail. String onto the FireLine, one size 8 silver-lined yellow bead, and three size 8 metallic dark green beads.

Begin working in even count peyote, creating a strip that is 4 beads wide and 124 rows long following the pattern.

Once complete, weave the thread back into the beadwork and trim.
STEP 2
The last row will have four beads extending out past the other three beads in the row. Weave the thread so the thread exits the inside of the first high bead. Pass the thread through the first loop of the clasp then through the second high bead. Continue to weave the thread through the beads and the remaining loops of the clasp. Weave the remaining thread into the bracelet to secure the clasp. Trim the excess thread.

Repeat to attach the second portion of the clasp to the opposite end of the bracelet.
STEP 3
Using scissors cut a 3-yard length of FireLine. Weave the thread into one end of the bracelet until it is secure. Once secure, weave the thread so it exits the last bead in the first row along the edge.

String onto the thread three size 11 silver-lined teal beads. Pass the thread through the last size 8 bead on the second row and then back out through the last size 8 bead in the third row.
STEP 4
String onto the thread three size 11 silver-lined lemon beads. Pass the thread through the last size 8 bead on the second row and then back out through the last size 8 bead in the third row.

Repeat step 3 to attach three size 8 Delica seed beads to the outer edge of the size 11 bead down the length of the bracelet in the following order; silver-lined blue AB, opaque rainbow cream, silver-lined teal and silver-lined lemon in a repeating pattern.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to attach three size 8 Delica seed beads to the outer edge of the size 11 bead down the length of the bracelet on the second side in the following order; opaque rainbow cream, silver-lined blue, AB silver-lined lemon and silver-lined teal in a repeating pattern.
