If you have never done a right angle weave before, please watch the Right Angle Weave Bracelet Video for a visual demonstration of this technique.
Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 36". String a seed bead, red glass pearl, seed bead, green glass pearl, seed bead, red glass pearl, seed bead and green glass pearl. Center the beads on your beading wire. Cross over with your right thread through the last green bead added on the left.
String a seed bead, red glass pearl, seed bead and green glass pearl on the left. String a seed bead, red glass pearl and seed bead on the right. Cross over with your right thread through the last green bead added on the left.
Repeat step 2 until you have 16 green glass pearls running up the center of your bracelet.
String a seed bead, red glass pearl, seed bead and crimp bead on the left. Run your wire through a loop on the clasp then back down through the beads just strung. Crimp. Apply a crimp cover. Cut excess wire.
Repeat step 4 on the right.
Take a piece of excess beading wire (about 5-6") and run it through the green glass pearl at the opposite end of the piece. Repeat steps 4 and 5 to complete the bracelet.

Love this bracelet and it was super simple to make. I did make one modification; instead of using the 2-strand slide clasp, I gathered them onto a double looped toggle and it looks great that way, too.
