Unlimited Beaded Bracelet Patterns

You can follow along with my bracelet pattern while learning the basics of this beadwork stitch. You can then modify it and create your own patterns easily. You can use a variety of shapes, sizes and colors to create your bracelet designs. The possibilities of bracelet designs are unlimited.

I had made them with Swarovski crystal beads, Czech glass druks (round pressed glass), Czech faceted glass beads (often refrerred to as fire polish). I like sizes from tiny seed beads up to 6mm. Beads larger than 4mm look best with this stitch when the shape is diamond. The common diamond shape is Swarovski Crystal bead shape # 5301 or 5328.

Crystal contains lead which is how it gets the sparkle. It is not appropriate for children. I recommend that glass is used if you want to make jewelry for children or if you are teaching this to children.

Learn this Versatile Beadwork Stitch

While you follow this tutorial you learn a beadwork stitch known as right angle weave which has been around for eons. I recall first seeing it in the 70′s in the Phillipines. At that time the stitch was used to weave beaded bags from wooden beads. I’m sure it was used much earlier than that.

Some weave with this stitch using two needles. I prefer to use the single needle method as it is very versatile and can be used to make a variety of more complex pieces. All of my tutorials use the single needle method.

Once you have mastered this simple technique you can move on easily to more sophisticated projects to include The Beaded Bag and The Beaded Bead, not to mention just about anything else that can be imagined.
