The bracelet is made from irregular red-orange bead chips over clear crystal beads and looks like flames of fire from crystals of ice. Sorry about the picture quality, I am still very bad at photographing beads, especially the shiny ones Sad

It is only fitting that my first challenge submission on Craftster pays homage to that stitch which got me into crafting - a simple Right Angle Weave. Years ago, when I found my grandmother's diary with few scribbled, almost illegible lines  and the remains of a half -done beaded purse, little did I know that it would send me into another world. My mom and I spent weeks trying to decode the instructions, during which I also searched the internet trying to find the pattern. That is what introduced me to the wonderful world of crafting - bead weaving, bead flowers, embroidery, crochet - and crafting sites on the internet.

The bracelet is very pretty! The different bead textures are good contrasts. I love the way they look together and I love the story about your grandmother's diary and the beaded purses. So sweet.

I'm new to beading and right angle stitch is the first one I learned.  I love the way you have made this, very pretty.
