I couldn't go for very long without releasing another addition to my peyote bracelet patterns collection. This bracelet started out as yellow and peach roses but ended up as pink roses.
I wasn't crazy about all of the "empty space" around the roses, so I added another rose bud. It was too long for me, so I shorted the stems to bring the roses closer together. I wasn't crazy about how the peach and yellow beads looked together, but I couldn't find the right combination of either yellow beads or peach beads to make it come together. That's how I ended up with pink. I love the blue contrast for the background.
The pattern uses 12 colors which makes it quite manageable. Five colors for the leaves, 6 colors for the flowers and 1 color for the background. The color for the roses can change, as long as you have 6 colors in the same color family in various degrees of intensity.
I have worked up a purple version, peach and red version based on beads that I have on hand. I haven't found 6 yellow colors that I like together.
