I was teaching two-drop peyote stitch at Interlochen at the beginning of this month. When I get the class going on the stitch, I start talking about the various ways this stitch can be used. I feel like every time I get going talking about this stitch, it gets my creative juices going as to how I should be using this stitch.
One of the ideas that I have always talked about is integrating bugle beads in with this stitch. I finally decided to do so.
The check-patterning is actually inspired by one of my students from this class. Once she got the stitch down, she got right into playing with alternating beads.
Bugle Two-Drop Bracelet $55.00
Finishing this bracelet was a little new for me. Due to the wide spacing of the bugle beads, I couldn't stitch in loops as I normally would. I found this gunmetal slide clasp in my supplies and figured out how to attach it. I'm really hapy with how this turned out.
