Purple and Gold Swirl Peyote Beading Pattern

Purple and Gold Swirl Peyote Beading Pattern

I’ve created another beading pattern for your enjoyment. This one is a Peyote stitch pattern for the bold and beautiful bracelet that I call “You’re Just Swirl”. The bracelet is around 1 1/2 inches wide so I guess technically it is a cuff? I am not sure what is the exact differentiation between a cuff and a bracelet actually. But I think it is a cuff. Anyone who knows the difference please enlighten us by leaving a comment on the topic. I used beautiful rich deep purple beads and the oh so luscious shiny 24k gold plated Miyuki Delica seed beads.

 I really love these gold beads. Don’t you think they look amazing? They look especially rich. I am partial to metal finished beads anyway, but these are really spectacular.

I haven’t worn it yet, but this bracelet is sure to get a lot of attention when I do. I am thinking of making another in red or maybe royal blue and gold. I haven’t decided yet. The stitch used is two-drop even count Peyote stitch, so It makes up pretty quickly. It was a lot of fun to design the pattern and make the bracelet. I also include instructions on how to make the beaded toggle clasp in the tutorial.

Oh yes, and for those of you that follow my blog weekly, I am done with jury duty! Yay! It was not really very fun. I am still doubting myself as to the final decision. It was really tough to decide. I didn’t feel like I had all the information I needed to make a good solid decision. Partly because I didn’t hear from what I feel were key witnesses and partly because I didn’t know what I was going to have to decide on specifically as I heard the case. They should have to inform the jury before hearing the trial what are the specific charges that will have to be decided on and exact legal definitions provided for each charge and the implications. The problem is that the law uses everyday words, but they have a different meaning than we commonly use. Sigh. Trials are really strange. I hope I am never in one as a defendant or plaintiff EVER!


  1. what size beads do you use when beading?

    • Size 11 seed beads are what I used for this bracelet.

  2. So I adore this pattern and I wish that I could come up with stuff like this on my own! My concern is the length of the finished bracelet. It looks huge on the manequin. Could you tell me the final length? Thanks!

    • Hi Olivia – the finished bracelet is 7 3/4″ including the clasp. If that is too large you can remove some rows or if not large enough add some rows repeating the last two rows in the pattern. The Clasp if made per the instructions is 3/4″ to help you judge where to stop the main bracelet section. Good luck. Feel free to contact me if you get stuck.

  3. Very beautifull work, and it changes from what we are use to see. I’d like to buy the pattern but i’ve got a question: I’m very interested in how you ended up the bracelet. Is it explain on the tuto?? Thanks and again awesome work

    • Makwa – the instructions for the toggle clasp shown in the picture are included in the pattern.
