Class at BeadFest Philadelphia - Shelley Nybakke's Metalsmith's Match

This is the best class I have taken at BeadFest.
Shelley Nybakke's A Metalsmith's Match is stitched in RAW  (right angle weave) with the heavy metal seed beads and Swarovski crystals.  The workshop was 7 hours and I completed most of the bracelet in that time.  Later that evening, when I returned home, I stitched another 3 hours for a total of 10 hours.  Everyone loves this and it is so classic.  I chose the matte gold and antique  copper beads with the turquoise Swarovski crystals.  I had no prior experience with RAW, so the night before the class I studied the thread path by viewing a few tutorials online.  Right Angle Weave may be my new stitching obsession.
