In the Laces Out Bracelet tutorial, you will learn how to make a beaded right angle weave (RAW) bracelet with a base of fire polish beads. On top, we embellish with bugle beads and seed beads to achieve an eye-catching chevron, or diagonal stripe pattern.
The laces out bracelet is also available for instant download in my pattern shop.
The easy right angle weave memory wire cuff bracelet tutorial combines both bead weaving, and basic work with wire. Use a combination of 4x6mm rondelle beads, and 4mm bicones to achieve the look demonstrated in the video, or get creative with other shapes and sizes you have on hand. As long as the beads are not much larger/heavier than what is shown, you won’t even need to add a clasp! The memory wire makes a perfect cuff bracelet frame, which holds its rounded shape.
The crystal rondelle and bicone beaded necklace also begins with a foundation of right angle weave. It’s one of the latest pieces I was inspired to create, based on the contents of the January 2021 Bargain Bead Box. Additional beads are added to fill-in, and frame, the base, including: 4×3 rondelles, and 11/0 seed beads. 6mm bicones also widen the bottom row of beading, to give this necklace a more rounded shape.
