Right Angle Weave & Ndeble Herringbone Bracelet

Oh joy, this one just gave me FITS. I'm still not overly wild about it though, but for now I'll keep it. Sooner or later though, it's likely to be cut up and the beads reused. Click to embiggen.

The stitches are Right Angle Weave (RAW) and Ndeble Herringbone. Hate 'em. Really I do.

The middle section is light blue glass drops lined with purple. I got the 'recipe' for the bracelet from the August '05 issue of Bead & Button magazine, page 85. For the record, I started it the Saturday before the Superbowl, and got about two inches into it. The rest was finished from 2/11/06 to 2/12/06. Lots of breaks for bitching and grumbling. I finished it up with the clasps on 2/13/06.

If I make another one, I'll use better seed beads, like Delicas because I think by using regular seed beads, it is crooked in some places.
