Project Description:

I just happened to have the champagne glass pearls, rose crystal rondelles and Miyuki seed beads on my desk, so the inspiration for this piece definitely came from the color palette. I used a right angle weave to whip up a bracelet that is beautiful, simple and elegant. The best part? You can use any 6mm glass pearl and any 8x10mm crystal rondelle, so the color combination possibilities are endless!

Rating Versatile pattern go from elegant to casual
 
I wanted to do something for my daughter last year for her wedding party ladies and this pattern just fit the bill perfectly. I found crystal roundels that matched my daughter's colors exactly and made a special one for my daughter to wear. Everyone got a lot of compliments. Depending on the beads/roundels you use, you can jazz it up or tone it down for a more casual, less blingly look.

Making this right angle weave bracelet was a lot of fun as the instructions and video were so good. I substituted freshwater pearls for the the 6mm glass pearls, made a pair of earrings and sold the set for $60 in a Cancer fundraising auction.

I happened to have all these products on hand, so I whipped up this bracelet. It worked up quickly, & was so easy! Looks like I spent hours on it!
