Well....it took me a while to get these up!  Haven't been posting a lot lately but I've loved seeing everyone's stuff!
This Christmas I had wonderful Czech beads that my friend got for me on her trip to Prague....TOTAL score!  I was playing around with a couple of weaves and i think I kind of made this one up?
They are SUPER sparkly in real life but I wasn't at home with all my good lighting when I took the pics.  I made a total of nine and actually have to make a couple more for belated gifts.
Enjoy!









My sister's broke so I had to reweave it.





I can make a tute if anyone wants?
***************
OK...you asked for it...here's the tute

To string I like to use nymo conditioned with beeswax and a big eye needle.



Please let me know if you have any questions...and post any project you do!

wow...you're right, the finished product looks the same...just goes to show that everything has been thought of.

In mine I actually pick up four seed beads and a czech bead then I go back through all four beads in the original direction.  Ugh...does that make sense?  I have to draw it!  I think the difference in the two is that the crystal wave pattern is more curved and mine ends up a little more zig zag but pretty similar.

I actually arrived at mine after playing with daisy chaining and right angle weave which I didn't end up liking for these beads.

alohamom2three, you may have used the same basic idea, but I think your selection of colors to combine with the Czech beads really sets them off. Congratulations on figuring it out for yourself and for making such beautiful jewelry!
