It looks like this pattern when I first saw it: Crystal Waves

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.

Yes, I really like your bracelets... they are super delicate!  Very feminine Smiley

This pattern is nice and simple, but works up such gorgeous pieces!  Very smart that you figured it out by playing around!  Woot! Wink

I made this using that method...


(I used size 6 crystals, so mine is really chunky!)  Just wanted to share Smiley

These are so pretty...I really like them!  Beautiful colors you've used, too.  I tried that crystal waves link, but it wasn't available anymore...unless it was just down today.  Anyway, I'd really love it if you provided a tut.  Yay for Craftsters sharing!!  Cheesy

Well, I loved your bracelets and tried to make my own based on the other tute linked, here's what I got...



 Cheesy as you can see it's not really the same lol, but it's still kind of pretty!!

I just couldn't seem to get past about step 3 in the other one.

Perhaps I should have tried something less ambitious for my first beading with a needle project?
