Right Angle Weave Bracelet



I had finished this Button Pearls with Swarovski Crystals Accented Bracelet last week but got no time to upload it immediately. Created by doing the Right Angle Weave Stitch below :

Right Angle Weave is a stitch made up of units with 4 sides. The thread passes through the beads at right angles – never going straight to the next “box”. This causes the stitch to flow in a clockwise and then counter-clockwise motion. It makes it easy to know where you are going because you are always making a turn before adding any beads.

The Crystal beads & Seed Beads used have bigger holes than the Pearls so I decided to use my newly bought 1-G Beading Filament made in Germany which was really quite handy , strong & smooth plus a size 12 needle which can easily pass thru the small holes a few times without problem .

Bracelet measures about 7 inches long and 2 cms wide .


All materials used :

22 pcs 8mm Side Drilled Button Pearls
42 pcs 5mm Round Swarovski Crystal Beads
10 pcs 3mm Swarovski Bicone Crystals
2 way Gold Plated Box Clasp
Size 8 / Size 11 Toho Seed Beads
1-G Beading Filament ( or Nymo Thread )
Size 12 Beading Needle

Excellent Beading Project for Beginners / Intermediate
