Peyote stitch: toggle clasp

Peyote toggle clasp

The following instructions make a 3⁄4-in. (1.9 cm) toggle clasp. Adjust bead counts if you want a larger clasp.

To make a toggle ring: On 1 yd. (0.9 m) of thread, pick up 36–40 15/0 seed beads, and tie them into a ring with a square knot, leaving a 12-in. (30 cm) tail. Work a round of even-count tubular peyote stitch using 15/0s, and then work two rounds with 11/0 seed beads. Using the tail, work one round using 11/0s, and then zip up the two edge rounds to form a ring.

To make a toggle bar: On 1 yd. (0.9 m) of thread, pick up 14–16 11/0 or 15/0 seed beads, leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail. Work a total of 10–14 rows of flat even- or odd-count peyote, roll the strip into a tube, and zip up the end rows.
