you create this modern cuff with twisted bugles and cylinder

• If you’re using similar colors
for the “dots,” lay them out in
a row to keep track.
• Be sure that the beads snap
into place in each peyote-
stitched row.
1) CLOSED SECTION. Peyote-stitch the
first portion of the cuff:
Rows 1 and 2: Use 6' of thread to string
14A, leaving a 2' tail.
Row 3: String 2A, skip the 2A previously
strung, and pass through 1A; repeat
three times to add a total of 8A.
String 2A and tie a knot with the work-
ing and tail threads to secure the beads.
Pass back through the last 2A added.
Row 4: String 1B and pass back through
the next 2A from the previous row;
repeat three times to add a total of 4B.
Row 5: String 2A and pass back through
the nearest bead added from the pre-
vious row; repeat to add a total of 10A.
Form a turnaround to step up for the
next and subsequent rows by looping
the thread around the exposed thread
between beads from the previous two
rows and passing back through the
final 2A added in the current row.
Row 6: Repeat Row 4, substituting A
for B.
Row 7: Repeat Row 5.
Rows 8–39: Repeat Rows 4–6, substitut-
ing the next cylinder-bead color in the
materials list for the B in Rows 8, 12,
16, 20, 24, 28, 32, and 36.
Rows 40–43: Repeat Rows 4–7 (Fig. 1) .
2) OPEN SECTION. Form an opening
in the base:
Strip 1: String 2A; pass through the last
2A exited in the previous row and the
2A just added; repeat seven times,
using tight tension to form a ladder-
stitched strip 8 pairs long (Fig. 2—
green thread) .
Connector: String 12A (Fig. 2—blue thread) .
Strip 2: String 2A; pass through the last
2A exited on the connector and the
2A just added; repeat six times to
form a matching ladder-stitched strip
• It’s best to end and begin new
threads in a closed section
rather than in an open one.
• To shorten the bracelet, add
fewer rows of dots in the first
section. To lengthen, add
more rows of the background
color on the button end.
• I use contrasting-color thread
to accentuate the pixilated
nature of this design.

button to form the center stitch instead
of using 2A. Work 2 more rows of peyote
stitch in the same fashion, incorporat-
ing the button shank into the rows.
Once the button is fully incorporated
into the beadwork, work rows of peyote
stitch with one decrease at the begin-
ning of each row (Fig. 4) . Secure the
thread and trim.
4) CLASP LOOP. Ladder-stitch an
opening for the button by repeating
Step 2 and adding enough pairs of 2A to
each strip so the opening is large enough
to accept the button. Repeat Step 1,
Rows 6, 5, and 4, to finish the square. If
the space is too large, repeat Step 3, Post
1, to close the opening’s size. Repeat the
entire thread path again to reinforce.
Secure the thread and trim.
3) POSTS. Add bugle and seed-bead
strands inside the opening:
Post 1: String 1K, 1L, 1M, 1L, and 1K;
pass through the mirror 2A directly
across the opening. Weave through
beads, forming a hidden turnaround,
skip the next 2A, and pass through
the next 2A, toward the inside of

Posts 2–4: Repeat Post 1 three times to
add a total of 4 posts. Weave through
beads to exit from the nearest end 2A
of the connector (Fig. 3) .
Repeat Step 1, Rows 3–43, through Step 3,
reversing the order of the colored beads
