Peyote Necklace to Match Jacket

Here is the second project in my series.  I am creating jewelry pieces out of seed beads, fibers, metal or other beads, to match some of the jackets in my closet.

Here is what this jacket looks like- a colorful blend of fuschia, purple,coral, and orange.


Hard to see the true colors in this jacket picture, but it looks better in person than in the image.  I picked it up at a Chico’s sometime in my past.

The goal was to make a matching jewelry piece that I can wear with this jacket.  So what pattern did I use?

I used my peyote pattern, titled Undulations, from the free tutorial page, to create the necklace, which looks like this:


Here is a close up image of the necklace’s button closure:jacketbuttonclose

I do love that the colors chosen for the necklace mimics the flow of colors in the jackets.  I plan to make a matching bracelet, too.

Here is one last image of my finished creation, next to the jacket:

    • Hi Mary, I have been beading for a couple of decades. I will be submitting my freeform beading class to you, which looks awesome on quilts and fiber projects! Take care and thanks for stopping by! Carla

      PS: I have a tutorial for this easy, beginner peyote stitch pattern.

  1. I also do beading but not as much as I would like and nothing to do with jewelry….I have plenty of beads and cannot wait for the Tutorial….
