Beautiful Ending Review by Rae

This is a beautiful and unique bracelet. I'm a fairly experienced beader but only just trying out more complicated beadweaving projects. This pattern does take some concentration, but I managed to produce basically the same bracelet as in the photo that lays flat and fits nicely. You need to really READ the pattern and follow the photos to be successful. It's a bit of work, but well worth it.

Terrible!! Review by Linnie

I ordered all the materials and set about to make this. I attempted this 5 times, adjusting my thread tension, culling my beads, rereading the directions, and it was just a mess! I am an experienced beader and have never had this much trouble with any pattern. It doesn't dance it BUCKLES. I much prefer Melissa Grakowski's herringbone bracelet in her book to this one.

Difficult but worth the effort Review by Anna

It took me a while to catch on to the pattern and it is not a cake walk. The finished product was so beautiful. I wore it to a Chinese New Year Festival and received many complements.
