Create bold beaded bangles in bright colours using bead stash basics and right angle weave.
The secret of this project is the combination of monofilament thread, two-needle RAW and an elastic beaded core, which gives the bangles a bit of stretch making them easy to roll on over your hands!
Using monofilament thread means there’s no need for a needle and it’s clear so it doesn’t show up against the beads. The bangles take a few hours to stitch but for such a vibrant effect they are worth the hours! It’s super easy to make larger or smaller bangles, simply by switching up the bead sizes, instructions for which are included.
Totally addictive to make, you’ll want one in every colour!
