Ankh Bead Patterns


My best friend loves ankh jewelry and she also really likes my wide peyote bracelets. Her birthday is coming up soon and I designed this bracelet for her in odd count peyote.


Because of the simplicity of the design, it works in 3 different colorways. With 2 colors and outlined shapes, 3 colors with a different color for the shapes,outlines and backgrounds and 2 colors with no outlines. Here are the patterns vertically oriented for easy printing. Each pattern is a separate file so right click to save them to print. The bracelet is 21 beads wide in odd count peyote. I start from the center and work out for the right length. In her case, very short, she has tiny wrists.


Color suggestions: Jewelry found from ancient Egypt used lots of very colorful stones, and several kinds of metal. Because Egypt had good gold deposits and silver was less plentiful, gold and copper are more commonly found than silver. For her bracelet, I'll be using a dark red s/l that looks like garnet, opaque black to resemble obsidian, and gold Delicas.

Other stones used were Lapis Lazuli, which is a dark blue and was a stone treasured for it's color, malachite, which is dark green banded with light green, carnelian which is a reddish brown, quartz, which can be well represented with crystal s/l beads, and turquoise, a blue/green stone.
Any of the metallic colors will work well for outlines.

I also graphed some radially symmetrical mandala like designs as well in 2 sizes. Click on the images for the full sized patterns, right click to save, then click your browsers back button to come back here.




As of the time I'm writing this, the friend I designed the bracelet for is in the hospital in critical condition. Please send your best wishes and prayers for my friend Kim.
