It's possible to try this pattern using square stitch instead, but I personally haven't tried it. It may be more difficult to stitch the long magatamas (the amber colored beads) with square stitch, and -- as always -- square stitch beadwork has a differerent look and feel than loomwork.
Also new this week is the tutorial for the big, chunky beaded toggle clasp I designed to finish my bracelet. It uses a wooden toothpick to support a peyote stitch toggle bar made with size 8/0 round seed beads. Magatamas adorn the bar ends, and the toggle latches with a simple beaded loop.
