I love designing and making peyote bracelets and I am particularly fond of simple, geometric designs.  This diagonal bracelet is easy to follow and most mistakes are easily forgiven by simply adjusting the pattern.  If you forget to start a new color at the right time, it's OK, just make that section a row longer and another one a row shorter.  Grab a copy of this easy peyote bracelet pattern at the end of this post.

If you are new to peyote, then check out my tutorial How to Peyote Stitch and then start with my ombre bracelet pattern. This bracelet would be a great second step.  While peyote can be done with any kind of bead, the intricate designs are achieved by using a special bead called a Miyuki Delica 11/0. Do not confuse these with seed beads sized 11/0. Delica beads are tubular, not round. That way, they fit perfectly in between each other giving a tight weave.  You mostly have to order them online or find a local bead store.  

If you need help with making the clasp, you can get my step-by-step instructions which will show you exactly how to do it.  I have updated the clasp to this bracelet to make it more of an extension of the bracelet design.  You can see what I did in the Beaded Clasps post.  It takes a little more effort to think about how you can design the clasp to look like it's part of the overall design of what you are making, but it is totally worth it to have a clasp that doesn't look like an afterthought.

You can check out my other patterns, some of which are free, in the Patterns and Kits page.

  • I ordered the snowmen peyote bracelet. I did not receive the “word chart”. Can you forward to me please

    • All of the patterns have been updated with the word charts. Thanks for letting me know they were missing.

  • I have been making jewelry for a long time as well. Beading with delicas size 11 through 8 brings me great satisfaction. Your designs are beautiful and I am eager to try several of your designs.
