Yes, yes, this is similar to the Armadillo bracelet, however, I had wanted to add beads to the bracelet and there just wasn't enough room to do it on the Armadillo, so I increased the size and made room. I like it because the "steps" seem to poke out a little more rather than have a scale like appearance. And adding beads just makes things fun! The technique that I'm using is similar to the layering that I have been doing and I really think it's a fantastic idea to be able to get more on the loom at a time. I hope you'll check these out as well!
