Create this cuff using diagonal peyote stitch and beaded components, which resembles the beautiful yet elusive northern lights. You will have the opportunity to exercise your peyote skills, learn how to work around the clasp part of this project (which can be also done as a bangle bracelet), and add to this the glamorous sparkles of magical crystals, which we will capture using a variety of pearls, seed beads, and SuperDuos. You will learn how to use diagonal peyote stitch to shape the body of any bracelet; how to transform it to make a bangle, or how to create a clasp attachment. We will also practice setting round crystals and forming the unique beaded frames around them.
