Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

These instructions make a 6 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of times you repeat the bicone pattern. Please note that to make this pattern longer you will need to purchase additional crystal golden shadow bicones.
  1. Begin by watching our video: How to Do Right Angle Weave. From what you've seen in the video, cut a length of Fireline thread as long as you are comfortable working with and thread a size 12 beading needle.
  2. Based on the technique shown in the video, string 4 bicones in the following order: burgundy, crystal golden shadow, olivine, burgundy. Then pass your needle back through the first bicone strung to create a loop. Going in the same direction, pass again through the second and third bicones, completing your first RAW unit.
  3. String another 3 bicones in the following order: crystal golden shadow, burgundy, crystal golden shadow. Then pass back through the anchoring olivine bead, creating a loop. Pass again through the next two consecutive beads.
  4. String another 3 bicones in the following order: crystal golden shadow, olivine, crystal golden shadow. Then pass back through the anchoring burgundy bead, creating a loop. Pass again through the next two consecutive beads.
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 another 13 times, until your weaving is 6 1/2 inches long. You may need to tie off and weave in your threads while working.
  6. At the end of the bracelet, add 5 gold seed beads to your needle, the loop of one side of the toggle clasp, and 5 more gold seed beads. Then loop around and pass back through the bicone on the end. Pass your needle through the beaded loop again to reinforce it.
  7. Next, go down the first side of the bracelet, adding a gold seed bead between each of the crystal golden shadow bicones.
  8. At the other end of the bracelet, add 5 gold seed beads to your needle,the loop of the other side of the toggle clasp, and 5 more seed beads. Then loop around and pass back through the bicone on the end. Pass your needle through the beaded loop again to reinforce it.
  9. Now go down the second side of the bracelet, adding a gold seed bead between each of the crystal golden shadow bicones.
  10. Tie off and weave in your thread tails. Enjoy your bracelet!
