Stairstep Necklace Tutorial

from Krestias Kreations
(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Stairstep Necklace Tutorial
Stairstep Necklace Tutorial Stairstep

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Right Angle Weave
  • Stringing

Pattern Description:

Curved right angle weave (RAW) is an amazingly versatile stitch and you can do some beautiful things utilizing this technique.

Stairstep is a lovely necklace for learning to make right angle weave curve. Being able to shape right angle weave gives new and exciting options to traditional right angle weave.

This piece is named, as many of my designs are, after a lovely waterfall on the Horsepasture river in North Carolina. The curves remind me of a descending staircase, thus the name for this design!
