Berry Bead Bubbles bracelet right angle weave beginning


If you haven't worked with right angle weave before or need a refresher on how to begin, check out our page on right angle weave for instructions.

1. Pull out a comfortable length of thread to work with (approx. 3-4 ft.) and string on four beads. There is no need to cut the thread from the bobbin as right angle weave can be worked in either direction.

2. Make a loop by stringing back through one or more beads.

3. Pull the thread so the beads fit snugly together. Work you thread around as necessary so your working thread is exiting a gold berry bead.

4. Add three beads to your working thread.

5. Create a loop by stitching back through the opposite end of the bead that your thread is exiting. This will secure the new beads to the original loop.

6. In this image you can see the shape of the berry beads as they lay on their sides. Notice the outline of the “peanut” shape. As you tighten your thread the beads will fit snugly into place.You will now be looking at the tip of each Berry bead.

9. Add three more beads and attach them by looping back through the bead the working thread is exiting.

10. Continue working in right angle weave until this first row of your bracelet has reached the desired length. The button closure we will use does not add significant length. If you decide to use a different type of clasp you will need to account for the length it will add to your finished bracelet. (Note: We have rotated the beadwork 90º to the right for the remaining steps.)

11. Once this length is reached you will bring your needle and thread into position to begin adding the second row of the bracelet. To do this stitch around so that the thread is exiting the first berry bead on the top of the row of beads. Add three beads and pull the thread tight to secure.
