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 8mm and 6mm round beads creates a curve in this necklace. Ten of the 8mm round beads are used in the outer edge of the necklace curve and ten of the 6mm round beads are used in the inner edge of the necklace curve. For the double strand eight of the 6mm round beads are used in the inner strand, alternating each 6mm bead with 3 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.
