This week I wanted to bead something simple. I thought I would make a R(ight) A(ngle) W(eave) bracelet that would be finished in a day.
RAW is a simple technique and if you use a nylon fishing line the square shapes really work. But I don’t like the general feel of a bracelet when it’s made with nylon thread. It tends to feel stiff.
That’s why I prefer a softer beading thread like f.i. Fireline. The ‘Bead Feel’ is superb, almost like fabric.
It took me 3 days to design and finish this bracelet. The bits of RAW that haven’t got embellishment needed to be sewn through at least 3 times to keep their square shape. Oh well, learning all the time!
