I can't seem to pull myself away from this cubic right angle weave...the possibilities are limitless! I used size 8 toho seed beads for the base...not as small as 11's but small enough to make it quite a time consuming endeavor. Originally I was just going to weave 3 strips of color for the "candy corn" look and be done with it, but when I got to the end it didn't feel finished to me. SO, I wove another layer of right angle weave and added some fire polished beads. Usually I am behind schedule when it comes to holiday jewelry, so I was real happy to get this finished an entire month before Halloween. Woohoo!

Jojo, this is really cool!  I'm loving the RAW stuff you are turning out.  I've only really messed around with that stitch a couple of times and had absolutely no idea that things like this could be made.  You are truly talented!

wow, that's pretty cool. Halloween jewelry is fun to wear. Smiley I like the raised edges that the top beads give to your bracelet.

what is it's structure? (is it just the beads in a hoop, is there a base bangle...?)

JoJo, I am in awe of your 'raw'....(didn't mean to ryhme! lol)

This is phenominal...I can really relate with what you said. So many times I think I will make something short and sweet, then it will be good only tell myself "It needs more"....this is gorgeous!!!

I'll teach you to loom, if you want to teach me to RAW!!!  Grin

Thanks for the kind words everyone!
beauootifulsooooup, there's really no structure, that is to say, there is no wire or anything inside the beaded loop part. When you bead a strip of cubic right angle weave and the zip the ends together to form a loop, it almost WANTS to be rigid. Filling in the holes with a strip of peyote stitch seals the deal, makes it nice and rigid.

Erin, I have a bit of experience with a loom, but I didn't like all the strands I was left with, so I haven't done it in a long time. There's a way to get around that if I remember correctly, but it's been so long.
I would love to share beading techniques with you! Unfortunately we live states apart. Do you have a teleporter by chance?  Wink
