This bracelet makes me think of shamrocks and St. Patrick's Day. It would be a completely different bracelet if I had used a different color besides green! I love making geometric peyote bracelet pattern designs. Peyote lends itself to angular shapes, so a geometric design can be done with fewer colors. And they look like they were so complicated to make but they really aren't. To get a realistic looking flower, you have to use several colors to get the shading just right.
I changed the clasp to be an extension of the design of the bracelet. You can see what a difference it makes to the look of the bracelet here. When you first start beading, you're happy to just be able to bead a clasp, but after awhile you want the clasp to make a statement. It takes a little more effort to think about how you can make a clasp that looks good with the bracelet, but it's totally worth it.
I had to see what a purple version would look like. I'm glad I did because this picture shows an error in the pattern! Luckily I was able to fix it before I published it. Do you see it?
This is not a beginner pattern, the ombre bracelet or "Crossing the Line" would be better for you if you've never done peyote before. You can grab a free copy of the Crossing the Line pattern below. If you are wondering what "peyote" is, then check out my basic peyote tutorial.
