Ice - Peyote Cuff Bracelet


This Peyote cuff bracelet called "Ice" was made for the Etsy Beadweavers March Challenge Stormy Weather. The band is made with size 8 seed beads in white. The stitch is two drop peyote with silver size 11 seed beads used for picots. The focal is a white and silver glass bead with colored flecks. It has rows of surrounding beading in white and silver. The closure is a hand made toggle. The band is a little over 1 inch wide and the focal is 1 1/2 inches wide. This bracelet will fit a size 6 1/4 to 6 1/2 inch wrist. This cuff is in my Etsy Shop here.

Sistren Jean,
This bracelet is beautiful. When it is worn, does the weight of the focal bead cause it to shift around on your wrist? That is the problem I encounter when I use a center bead on a peyote band.

I make the cuffs so they do not fit too loose on my wrist. But they do tend to shift.
