Thoughtful combination of beads Review by Christine
Rating

The way different types of beads were combined to design this pattern is so unique. Great design! I loved how the outer and inner bands were connected. I initially thought 11 feet of thread was excessive, but had no problems with the fireline tangling. However, the bangle is too large for my wrist, if I make this pattern again, I will shorten the pattern and use a clasp.

Weaving the outer band of this very large bangle was awkward, although not difficult, to bead. Review by Bonnie

This bangle is really big and may be too large for most beaders. It's very pretty and I will make it again, but I'll size the pattern down and add a clasp to make it a bracelet instead of a bangle because I have a small wrist.

In places the directions were good, in other places not so much, although the illustrations were fine. While the beading was not difficult, weaving the outer band was very awkward. There didn't seem to be any good way to hold the beading as it progressed so it worked up very slowly.

To me, the suggested 11' of thread for the inside band was not a good idea. The number of times the thread was pulled through the beads caused the thread to wear and I believe using 2 shorter lengths would have yielded a more secure result. I don't think piecing the peyote band would have weakened it as thread is easily secured in peyote stitch, but the worn thread might.break at some point.
