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 5mm round beads creates a curve in this necklace. Eight of the 6mm round beads are used in the outer edge of the necklace curve and eight of the 5mm melon round beads are used in the inner edge of the necklace curve. For the double strand nine of the 6mm round beads are used in the inner strand, alternating each 6mm bead with 3 4mm beads. The longer strand has ten of the 5mm melon beads, alternating each 5mm melon bead with 3 4mm beads.
