|Cut a three yard length of Nymo®. Add your needle to the end first off the spool. Apply thread conditioner if you'd like. Add a stop bead to the end, leaving an 18-inch tail which will be used to attach the bracelet to the clasp later. Do not use this bead when working your pattern.|
|Thread on six size 8/0 seed beads; bring them down to the stop bead. Begin the peyote stitch.|
|With your needle facing the other direction, pass the needle through the last bead strung in the next to last row, then through the last bead strung in the last row. Pick up a new bead and pass the needle through the next 'popped up' bead in the row. Continue across the row.
|Repeat Steps 1 and 2 until you've decreased as far as you'd like or as your project instructions indicate.
To end, weave your thread into the beadwork until the thread is secure. Trim any excess thread.
|Exit the last bead in the previous row of the existing peyote stitch strip. String three seed beads then pass the needle through the first seed bead. Bring the seed beads down along the edge of the strip and position the beads so the two beads on the end sit on top of each other. (This is extending peyote by two columns and adding the first seed bead in the next row.)
Tip: The beads will want to twist when first added but will smooth into the design with additional rows.
String one seed bead then pass through the next up seed bead in the existing portion of the strip.
Continue the even count peyote stitch.
