Confetti Spiral by Marilyn T. Aronson


Tubular peyote stitch gets fancy when you change up the beads in each round. Marilyn T. Aronson's Confetti Spiral looks like you made lots of complicated increases and decreases throughout this colorful peyote rope, but just using different sizes of seed beads is what creates the ins and outs of this bracelet. Create your own fiesta using vivid, bold colors in a Dutch spiral, where simply changing bead sizes in tubular peyote creates a dynamic twist effect. Once you get the hang of the spiraling stitches, you'll have a samba of a bracelet on your wrist in no time!

Pattern #3

Pearly Mosaic by Lisa Kan


Mosaic tile work inspired this necklace in colors chosen to mimic the sea. By utilizing both transparent and opaque Japanese seed beads in two sizes, 15° and 11°, Lisa added subtle textural interest to the design. Instead of increasing stitches, one and two drop is used to expand the ring uniformly. Although made in the same pattern, the rings have alternating colors and connecting them in a particular sequence adds a sense of controlled randomness and movement. The pearl clasp closure provides a seamless connection and is modeled after a ball and socket concept. You'll find yourself loving the soothing rhythm of flat, circular peyote stitch as you work up a series of components with your favorite seed beads to assemble into a stunning necklace.
