2017 Thursday Bead Post #39: Double & Triple & Multi flat Peyote

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! 🍗🍴 This week I am going to blog once more about Peyote stitch. This time about flat multi drop Peyote. By putting multiple beads in the place of one bead, the patterns that can be made in Peyote become infinite. This week I made a bracelet from a Carol Dean Sharpe aka SandFibers pattern. The pattern is her Fiddle Dee Dee Peyote Cuff pattern which is available in her Etsy shop. You can find more about SandFibers on Facebook and in the SandFibers Etsy shop -click on over and drool at the over 150 Peyote patterns (and more)! 


I used DB 877 & DB 874 to make her pattern into a holiday themed bracelet. I usually make some kind of holiday colored jewelry for myself every year. This year it is this fun bracelet. :) Big thanks to Carol for this pattern! I have had the pattern for years and of course am just getting to it! 

If you were wondering.... I used these "vintage"/secondhand buttons as the clasp for this bracelet. I one time found a huge bag of carded buttons at an Estate sale. They matched the green so well I couldn't resist.

This blog actually has a few free multi drop patterns. I started this blog with them all of the posts from August of 2014 are free multi drop Peyote patterns. Both of these bracelets are from those patterns!

Next week I am going to cover Soutache. It is something the Battle was filled with and also something I haven't done more than trying it once. I will be learning- wish me luck!
