Can anyone tell me how to do a ruffle on a regular peyote stitch? I saw this cute bracelet on fusion beads kits, and I am sure it simple enough, but the few instruction I did find out there, didn't look like they matched what fusion did. I really wished that Fusion offered instructions, rather than buying the entire kits. I have so many beads taht I want to use, rather in buying more just yet. :-) anyone who can help would be great.
If you could post a link where you saw the bracelet, it would be easier to tell. A ruffle usually emerges from increasing "too much", so the beadwork doesn't stay flat, but makes ruffles.
Here is the link to the page... if you can't get there... Just go to fusionbeads.com and then bead kits, and Peyote ruffle bracelet.
Beading Daily has a video for these beads, they call them poodle beads. Go to the videos on this site and look for it.
THANK YOU!!! :) now, what about this one? http://www.fusionbeads.com/shop/product/60559/ I am actually looking for how to turn it into a circle 'open' pendant...
The bracelet is really cute! I didn't find the video on poodle beads, but here's the written instructions.
The ruffle bracelet looks like a simple band of peyote with three rows of 3-bead picots as edge embellishment.
The crystal bling bracelet is simple RAW with Swaro crystals in two layers, I think. For a pendant just decrease the number of beads in the circle to make it shorter. Et voilà you have a pendant. There are many tuts around for making things with Swaros in RAW.
I also saw the Ruffle Peyote Bracelet on Fusion and wanted to know how to make the ruffle at the top and the bottom of the bracelet....the website is Fusion.com, under kits....
