Naughty and Nice Bracelet patterns

One of those odd things in July is the idea of Christmas in July. Because of the lack of holidays in July and August, Christmas in July gives people something to celebrate. There are parties, sales events and other things happening with theme of Christmas in July.

The idea of Santa's Naughty and Nice lists has been around for a very long time. The idea of the lists comes from Nordic folk tales about a magician who left presents for well behaved children or punished the ones who weren't well-behaved. It's now a very popular idea used in a lot of films and books.

These bracelets will let you declare which list you think you're on, or can be given as a gift. They are 11 beads wide, and sized for using with size 11/o Delicas.

For the simple strip bracelets done in peyote, I recommend starting from the middle and working out on both sides. That allows the best customization of fit as well as centering the design. So if you have very small wrists, it could be 90 rows long (back and forth) with a clasp, for larger wrists, it could be 110 beads if necessary. It's graphed at 100 beads.

Since they are only a few colors, it will be easy to choose colors for them. But for people who prefer recommend colors-
For the Naughty bracelet:

  • DB 10 - Opaque Black

  • DB 210- White Pearl

  • DB 601- Silver Lined Red

For the Nice bracelet

The graph is marked every 10 rows to make it easier to count.
