Here are some more bangles I wove in right angle weave. I finished them last weekend but just got around to taking pics of them. Hard to find time to take pictures, it's much easier to find time to bead.  Wink
The first bangle is woven with light pink toho seed beads (size 6) and purple swarovski crystal pearls. A little late in the season for baby pink I suppose, but I started in the spring, so that's gotta count for something, right? lol. It's rigid but still flexible.




This next one is a bit more "industrial" as I wove it with all hematite beads, a little bit heavier and rigid too. Nice and textural...one of those bracelets you want to keep touching.

Jojo, these are awesome!  It's never too late for baby pink, I love them!  I know what you mean about not enough time to take pictures, that's always the last thing I really ever find time for (it's so frustrating), but your pictures are stunning.  What is the inner diameter of the bracelets?

I love the baby pink bracelet. It looks just like octopus tentacles! I know that wasn't your intention but I like it that way.

Thanks! The pietersite bangle is 7" (17.8cm) around on the inside, and the hematite one is 6" on the inside. I have tiny hands and that just fits over my wrist...so I'm going to consider 6" xs.
The picture taking thing...ugh. It's really my least favorite part. Someday I hope to have a professional photographer do my entire collection but right now I just gotta make do!

Nope Casstasstrophie that wasn't really my intention but I am always open to interpretation. Plus octopus are cool.  Smiley

Wow, so neat! I am really in awe of your guys with your needles and thread. I do admit though, I have never tried bead stitches with tohos or delicas... Maybe when my next shipment comes in? Tongue

These are beautiful... I have no idea how they are done, but am off to research right angle weave... too pretty not to try!
