Took a class at the LBS last Sunday and was taught this pattern.. Called Tin Roof, by Bead Haven Las Vegas, modified design by Rosé Kasallis - our instructor. I like it a lot, lots of repetition!

what stitch? what size beads? I love the colors used, did you pick or was this an instructor's kit that you used. When I was learning my various stitches I just loved getting a kit because it often got me to working with colors and combinations I might not have picked.

I like it, it is very much up my alley. Donna

Okay, your gonna love this... It is Firepolish beads (3 colors, turquoise, purple, mingled beige) and size 11 seed beads.  This is the 2nd one I made. The other one is 3 stripes of color wide. You can do all kinds of variations with this pattern, chevron. Squares, 2, 3, 4 wide in colors, make squares with your colors ( this is the one I want to try next). The pattern is a version of simple right angle weave. Glad you like it... I love it!!

Here is the 1st one... Somehow my blue color got mixed and I have light and dark blue beads, made me sick, but I can still wear it.

Lovely - I like the look of densely packed beads with almost nothing in between. The colours are rich and interesting - really nice bracelet.

Lou, it's beautiful!  It looks so very Art Deco to me, which is one of my favorite time periods to go to for jewelry inspiration.  I really dig it!

Thanks Noel, it has become one of my favorites. Look at this one, done with shiny fire polish.
