I'm currently working on a GSG bracelet. First time i've used it and i've found it to be a most pleasurable weave. It's flat, relatively easy to make and doesn't use a million rings. I used Phong's tutorial. Mine is 0.8mm gold fill 4mm ID and looks great.
HP 4-1 is also one of my favourite weaves and definately worth learning.

John Lennon once sang a song where he imagined a world with no religion at all, and how all the people would be living life in peace, which sounds like a pretty terrific philosophy to follow - but then again, John Lennon also sang a song about how he was an eggman and a walrus goo goo g'joob, so i'm not sure he was always 100 per cent reliable.

Well... I have to recommend Tiffany of course. Its just so much fun once you learn how to speedweave it. Any of the stuff Phong has tutorials on is also worth learning.

Give a go at the various Celtic Visions sheets, so long as you have the ring sizes to make it work right. It's a gorgeous and extremely versatile family of weaves.

I've a couple more variants on Celtic Visions in the queue on the Weaves Section as well.
