More Bracelets Using Right Angle Weave (RAW)

Black Ruffles: I used 6mm round Swarovski crystals, one 16mm Cosmic cut jet black crystal for the closure and 11/0 seed beads for embellishment. I added 2 rows of tiny beads under the crystals to give it a ruffled look.

Shades of Green: This one, I almost didn’t finished. Hubby’s first reaction was YUCK!! That usually tells me he does not fancy one of my creations. LOL!!

He said it was too drab and that I should have used a different color for the embellishment. Something like gold. As in metal gold. I finished it anyway since I wanted to try out a different way of closing off a bracelet. I had one little “button type” clasp I was dying to try out. It works like a punch in snap and adds very little length. Even though the color combination isn’t all that pleasing, it is a success to me.

And lastly, I started this one but ran out of steam, wanted to move on to something different. I will swing back around to finish it in a few days. It should be pretty. I plan to use a black crystal donut ring as the toggle. Not sure if I will add embellishments. I may leave it plain.

    I really like the Shades of Green one (hubby and I think “pretty!”). It is very much in a number of the green colors I favour. I also like that you managed to get several shades of green to go with each other in a complimentary fashion. I usually find that very difficult to do with greens, though very easy with blues.

    I totally agree. When I saw that the seed beads would be a great match, I got all excited and started sewing. šŸ˜€ Thanks for the compliments on my work. Tell your hubby THANKS, too!!

  3. The green one would make a very pretty choker. I like the matte seed beads you used.

    Thanks!! That green one is soooo much prettier than the photo shows. I have taken about 40 pictures but they all come out the same.

  5. I do like the matte beads…they feel better when you rub your fingers over them like worry beads! šŸ™‚

    These are beautiful bracelets! You talked me into it; I think I’ll give it a try. I mostly work with seed beads, but I do dabble in other sizes from time to time. I’m glad I found your site. I’ve been looking all around wordpress for fellow beaders. I’m pretty new to blogging and am doing a photo blog, but only have 2 pairs of my earrings up, along with scenery and other things. I’m going to stop by here several times a week to see what you’ve been up to. Keep on beading!

    Hi there, thanks for the compliments on my work. RAW is a very easy stitch to learn. You can make a bracelet and wear it in about an hour. I bet you make several.

    I am glad you found me too. I work a lot with seed beads so maybe I can get some ideas from you.

    A friend of mine just started a photo blog. Check her out at

  8. I love them Thanks 4 showing them to us…

    I really like the green one!!! It’s kindof drab yes, but as a military wife I’ve gotten used to the “olive green”. lol šŸ˜‰
