I've been experimenting a bit with right angle weave, and cross needle weaving. Using 2 needles to do anything was a bit challenging at first, but now I seem to have the hang of it. It makes beading easier and works up faster, IMO anyways.
This "almost chunky" bracelet was woven with size 3/o toho seed beads, and finished off with small pietersite nuggets. Pietersite is such a pretty stone - one of my favorites.

Lovely bangle.  The colors are gorgeous.  I would love to learn beadweaving one day.

This is very cool!  I love how well it holds its shape, and its natural rustic look.  I'm tempted to make a bangle or two, that cellini spiral deal has me really intrigued, your bangle may have just pushed me over the edge to make a few myself :-D.
