CRAW Bangle take 1

I finally bit the bullet and attempted this tutorial from Beading4Perfectionists on a cubic right angle weave bangle.

It’s my first ever bangle, so I’m pretty happy that it’s bangle shaped and fits over my wrist but I’m not too happy with the colors on it. These were just the beads I had in my stash that matched this particular design so I went for it. I’ll have to try again with a better bead combo.

That being said my neighbour loves it! Shame it doesn’t fit her otherwise I would happily gift it to her… ah well.

The Fringe….

Originally, the plan was to make a CRAW bracelet, but somehow I ended up with this instead.

The base for this is still CRAW but it turned into a fringed necklace, does that ever happen to you? You start making something and it morphs into something completely different? I actually love when that happens, it makes me happy to go with the flow and surprise myself with what I end up with.

For this non-bracelet, I used 8/0 seed beads in silver lined purple and gold (for added bling of course!) for the necklace and the fringe, 4mm bicones at the end of each fringe, and some square glass beads I found in my stash, and a simple lobster clasp to finish it off with.
