New Tutorial - Daisy Chain Cable Beaded Bangle Bracelet and Earrings Angle Weave

I just released a new tutorial for that explains how to bead weave a bracelet and earrings with one size of seed bead, round or bicone beads, and thread. No fancy shapes required! The Daisy Chain Cable is solid and somewhat flexible. Its cross section is oval, measuring 7 mm by 8 mm when woven with size 11° seed beads. You can weave it as long as you want, and you can also scale it up or down with other sizes of beads.

This tutorial includes step-by-step instructions for weaving the bracelet into a continuous bangle. You will also learn two ways to end the cable, so you can add a clasp, make earrings or weave it into more complex pieces of bead weaving.

This tutorial is designed for advanced beginning bead weavers. This design uses the honeycomb angle weave. It’s like right angle weave (RAW), but with other angles. If you like RAW and want a new challenge, you’ll love this. However, you don’t need to know RAW to follow this very detailed tutorial.

The tutorial is 14 pages, including about 75 illustrations and photographs. The tutorial is a PDF file that gives step-by-step instructions for the bracelet and earrings in the photos.

The materials you will need include
Size 11° seed beads, colors A, B
4 mm beads, round or bicone
Thread: Fireline 6 lb.
Beading Needle, size 10 or 11

You can scale this weave down with size 15° seed beads and 3 mm beads, like I did for the earrings. Fireline 6 lb will still work, but you might want to use 4 lb instead. You can also scale this weave up with size 8° seed beads and 6 mm beads to make a chunky daisy cable that weaves up quickly.

Thanks for looking!
