Right Angle Weave Seed Bead Patterns (4/8/2015)

2015 April 8

The more Right Angle Weave projects I do, the more I appreciate this stitch. There are so many variations and it is easy to embellish. I find it works up fairly fast, too. I’ve taken several classes with Marcia DeCoster and I’m taking a class with Shelley Nybakke this weekend. Both use Right Angle Weave extensively.

PRAW is a relatively new term, but it describes a variation of CRAW that’s been around for a while. Marcia recently blogged about the consensus around the PRAW term in relation to her gorgeous Ancient Bells necklace. Basically, the great thing about CRAW is that it’s such a versatile stitch that can be adapted in many different ways, but many variations of this technique have gone beyond the “cubic” part of CRAW to the point where what’s being stitched is no longer a cube, but rather a prism.

I may have mentioned once or twice before how much I love right-angle weave because of all the potential for embellishment in this popular off-loom bead-weaving stitch. Really, once you learn basic right-angle weave (flat or tubular), there are so many options available to turn it into fabulous beadwork! Whether you’re using it as a base for a beaded necklace or bracelet, or a cabochon bezel, you can make right-angle weave as glamorous or as down-to-earth as you’d like using just a couple of easy bead embellishment techniques.

It’s New Year’s Day! A day in which I usually take some time to set intentions for the clean slate that is the year ahead. This year? In addition to all the usual intentions (more rest and exercise; gaining my SCUBA certification; honing my nunchuk skills) that may or may not be kept, I intend on delving even deeper into my right-angle weave knowledge. One thing that I’ve already gleaned from our designers while doing tech-edits for Beadwork magazine is that there are two ways to work cubic right-angle weave.
