Peyote Tube Bracelets

Here are the bracelets that I mentioned in my previous post.  I don't know what I did to deserve two of them, but they are gorgeous!  And much prettier in person; I couldn't get a photo good enough to show them in their true splendor.

Jennie says that she got the idea and instructions from an issue of Bead&Button magazine.  Each one of the vertical bars are actually peyote tubes, each made individually.  Then, once enough tubes were made, they were joined together.

The toggle clasp was also a narrow peyote tube, and I am surprised at how firm it is (every time I've tried a toggle clasp like this, I've been less than successful).

I'd call this eye candy for the day!  So once again Jennie, thanks so much for the lovely bracelets.

    Hi Sharon,

    Thanks for the question! The answer is that the pattern is in the June 2007 issue of Bead & Button.

    If you’re a member of B&B (sign up is free on the http://www.beadandbutton.com website), you can buy this project in a .pdf format. Search for the project called “Colorful Connections”.

    On the other hand….why buy just a project when each issue of B&B is a treasure trove of goodies! 😉

    Thanks again, Sharon, and hope this helps. Have a great day!
