THanks for looking. Smile

Oh my that is beautiful!  I am struggling with RAW, course I am left handed.  Think that makes a difference.  When I start my little squares I tend to go left instead of right ...

I really like this bracelet.

Ingrid...........very very nice colors, conservative yet interesting. I like it. First stitch I took a class on and I loved making the huge variety of things RAW does so well.

HCChiky..........do not worry about right and left, just remember to keep going around in circles, no cutting across intersections, and go around until you get to the next spot where you can join the next square...... It is that simple. I was taught using the "floor, walls, roof" idea and I really didn't get it and crossed straight over many intersections. Now I just concentrate on going around corners and jumping off onto a new square and it works for me. Keep at it until you find the "trick" that works for you, I know left handed beaders who just whip through RAW, not a problem. Donna

Thank you Donna, that is a huge relief! I am determined to not let it get me. I just bought the booklet, Stitch Workshop - RIGHT ANGLE WEAVE from B & B magazine.  Maybe it will help...

I like the way how you assemble firepolished accent beads with seed beads! The bracelet is really gorgeous!

In fact it is the first time I have a chance to have a view on firepolished accent beads, can't believe they can keep consistent with other colors in such a peaceful way! Big Smile

Thank you all for very nice comments. So strange to see the colors on the picture, doesn´t seem to be like the colors irl. 

Well, some colors are very difficult.

Thanks. Well, it actually never accured to me that this could be Art Deco-ish. Hm, I think I have a thing for quite strong and clean lines. But hey, Art Deco is a word of honour to me. ;)

Oh yes, Art Deco is one of my absolute favourites; the geometry, the elegant, clean lines, the colours (not that garish nonsense you find down in Miami, FL, mind).  I have a lovely Art Deco tea set I purchased at auction several years ago.

I could see Lady Cora wearing your bracelet, and I think it would definintely be to Lady Mary's tastes.  It's possible even Lady Violet would wear it!  I do so love Downton Abbey.  It's a wonderful British programme.  Much better than the rubbish that seems to be the norm on American television.  Too much "reality tv."  It doesn't inspire me, jewellery-wise at all.
