Make something bright, unusual and beautiful! I used traditonal Czech rocaille seed beads in size 11/o. I strongly advise you to use these as they are narrower than Miyuki or Toho and add to the charm of Huichol beadwork. If you use other seed beads the bracelet will be quite a bit larger and you may not like the end result. I have included a layout diagram of the bracelet, and diagrams with instructions for the first 4 rows. After that you can either follow the layout diagram or the word chart for each row.
The bracelet is 6.5 inches long and 1.9 inches wide without the clasp. You will need light red, dark red, light orange, dark orange, blue, yellow and black seed beads. You can purchase these on ebay, shipwreckbeads or any native american beadstore.
Success! Feel free to
