Bead Stitching: Right-Angle Weave

Right-angle weave can look complicated, but it starts with a straightforward series of stitches to which beautiful embellishments are added. Follow along with Barb to master the foundations of this stunning stitch, starting with the basic weave, then moving on to two-drop right-angle weave. You'll make lovely bangles and bracelets along the way! You'll also learn tubular right-angle weave that's perfect for necklaces, and cubic stitching to create elegant, geometric beaded beads. Turn a handful of beads into an array of dazzling jewelry!
