I didn't really use a pattern for this. I used crystal tabac squares and looped them with peyote strips. I used DB-31 Delicas for the peyote strips. I beaded the strips over the edges of the squares like a bail. There are other ways to do that, but I didn't want the crystals to be able to touch each other in the loops. I used a Swarovski button for the clasp.

There really isn't a pattern for this. A friend made one from size 1 bugles, and I copied it! I seem to be making a habit of that, huh? Anyhow, it's simple peyote with a picot edge and a Swarovski button for the clasp. This is another one of those bracelets that is VERY comfortable and feels slinky. I'm working on another one right now in a gold iris mix. I hardly EVER make two of anything.

This bracelet is from a Lisa Kan pattern that was in the December 2008/January 2009 issue of Beadwork. This bracelet is very comfortable and, thankfully, the colors that I chose go with a lot of different outfits. Usually I'm not very good at picking colors on my own. :(
