If you haven’t tried netting, you might find it fun and interesting. Not only do you use less beads that most other stitches, it works up fast. You can make very delicate necklaces and bracelets, as well as elaborate collars. Here’s some ideas to try:

The Guinevere Bracelet pattern is now free! This would be a great tutorial for those looking to learn right-angle weave. Although I use bicone crystals and glass pearls, any 4mm beads and size 11 seed beads will work. Enjoy!

Well, you asked for it, and here it is: a challenging little technique I stumbled upon using two-holed seed beads for right-angle weave. I don’t know what it is about right-angle weave that inspires me so when I play with my two-holed seed beads and my round druk beads, but right-angle weave is one of those beading stitches that just came naturally to me when I first started learning how to bead. Right-angle weave is one of those stitches that I can use to lull myself to sleep at night when I’m wide awake and can’t relax — there’s something about the thread path of this beading stitch that I find to be just naturally relaxing and meditative.
If you haven’t noticed the two-hole bead craze, you must have been living in a cave for the last several years. As fun as it was to start, there are so many new shapes and patterns coming out, it’s hard to keep up. The latest are two-hole triangle beads. I can’t wait to get my hands on some. If you haven’t played with any two-hole beads, here are some patterns to get you started.

One of the best things about working at Bead&Button is getting to play around with the many different kinds of beads our contributors/designers use in the projects they send us. We are already working on the June issue, so I’m knee-deep in sea and summer projects, but I took a little break to work on these really fun-to-stitch bracelets using the two-hole bead studs. These bracelets are designed by Dana Rudolph, and she stitched the cream/gold and the bronze/gold versions. I, of course, got to stitch the other two.
