Happy President's Day To Me! Finally cracked Cubic Right Angle Weave!

I want to shout from the mountaintops:  I can do cubic right angle weave!  Like, really!  But alas, there are something like 2 people on earth who might even look up to acknowledge the accomplishment.  Sigh.  Anywho, what tipped me over the C-RAW edge was an online video, on the Bead & Button Mag site. 

Once I started, I could not stop.  This may be first time I have finished a bead weaving project in the same week I started it!

The pendant is not RAW, it is just a peyote bezel around a pretty rivoli I picked up at one of my favorite bead shops, La Bead Oh! in Springfield, IL.

Below see the little caterpillar that represents my RAW chain's humble beginnings.  It worked up very quickly and is quite flexible.  The only downside I can see is that it eats a lot of thread, my 'spensive One-G, and you have to use the 'spensive stuff because a lot of thread does show in this. 


  1. Your necklace is beautiful. I'll keep tryinlg to get the hang of it, especially if the outcome is so beautiful.

  2. I just recently cracked CRAW also and I'm having so much fun with it! Another notch in my beadweaving belt keeps the boredom at bay!

  3. I am shouting with you!! Just tackled it tonight and I think this will be my new best friend.
