Adding 11/0 and 8/0 seed beads to the Peyote stitching adds texture to the CarrierDuo beads. For this colorway I use eleven CarrierDuo beads to provide symmetry in the alternating CarrierDuo bead patterns. Add the FREE PDF pattern to your cart to get the detailed instructions for this unique colorway. Joining the Beaded CarrierDuo beads together using size 6mm and 4mm round beads creates a curve in this necklace. Adding an 8/0 seed bead on either side of the 6mm or 4mm beads adds just a little bit of length to this colorway. Ten of the 6mm round beads are used in the curve and eight are used in 1/2 of the double strand alternating with 3 of the 4mm beads. The longer strand of the double strand has forty of the 4mm beads.
Below are the components used in this design example. If you would like to make this version yourself, you will need to calculate the quantities of each item to purchase, depending on the length of bracelet you wish to make, etc.
