I made this butterfly peyote stitch pattern to say goodbye to summer.  Butterflies usually make you think of Spring, but they are also a universal symbol of re-birth and newness.  Besides that, a lot of people just really love butterflies!

I was playing around with the clasp, trying to come up with something a little different.  After writing Peyote Stitch Bracelet Clasp, my view of clasps has changed completely.  I am trying to make the clasp part of the jewelry and not something that is slapped on at the end. This clasp is sort of a warped triangle that I folded over because the opening was way too big.  I made a 'triangle' using size 15 rocailles for the first 4 rows and then size 11 Delicas.  It sort of looks like butterfly wings don't you think?  I'm not really crazy about the 2 bars, although it doesn't look too bad when they are hooked through the 'wings'.

I went a little crazy with all of the colors in this pattern so I created another version of this butterfly peyote stitch pattern with 4 less colors. I also made this version a little longer, 7 5/8 inches instead of 7 inches. The bracelet is a hair shy of 2 inches wide.  I wish I had the time to make this version too!  Sooo many patterns, so little time.

I found this beautiful butterfly bracelet on the internet by Ellygator at https://www.deviantart.com/ellygator.  While we are on the subject of clasps, do you see in the green version how she rounded off one end and sewed in a snap to make a cuff?  I love this bracelet!
