Learn the Basic Right Angle Weave Stitch by Fusion Beads


[Allison] Today I’m gonna
show you how to create a basic right angle weave. Basic right angle weave is a must learn for any new bead weaver. The structural nature of this weave allows for many possibilities for necklaces, bracelets, and pendants. You can play with color, patterns, and different types of beads for endless design possibilities. For this technique I’m going to be using 4 millimeter bicone beads. But for this technique
you can also use any beads that you prefer. We’re also gonna be using
FireLine braided bead thread. Size 12 English beading needle, and you can also use beeswax or synthetic beeswax to
condition your thread to help prevent fraying of the thread. And then we’ll be using Xuron
Thread and Fiber Scissors. And these cleanly and easily
cut high strength thread used for bead weaving. (upbeat music) Okay so to start, you want to thread about eight feet of your beading thread onto your needle. Then you want to bring the needle to the middle point. So it’s about four feet on either side. And then at the end, you want to tie a knot. And this will allow you
to use double thread which will make your
finished piece stronger. Okay so now you want to string four beads. And then bring these beads down towards the end of your thread leaving about six inch tail. And then you want to go back through all the beads. The first one go through all the beads again. Pull tight. And then you want to go
back through that first bead that you added. Okay so then this will create a four ring or four bead unit. Now you want to string three beads. And go back through that
first bead you added. Then you go back up those two beads. Okay so you’re coming
out the end bead here, and you’re just gonna
string three more beads. And again go through the end bead and pull tight. And then go up the side bead. And then that end bead there. As you can see there’s these
four ring little units here. And we’re just working our way up. So you’re just gonna keep
stringing three beads, going through the end bead, the opposite where the threads coming out. So you’re going in and pull tight. And then up that side bead. And then through that last end bead. Okay so again. String three beads. Go through that end bead, coming in the other end. Pull tight. And then go up that side bead. And then through that bead on the end. Okay, one more time. String three beads. Go through the end bead on the opposite side where the thread is coming out, pull tight. Out the side bead. And then back through the end bead. Pull tight. Okay, so I’m just gonna go
ahead and continue this until I get about seven inches long. So now I have about a seven inch length of my right angle weave and I want to make another length, like another row for this strip. So to do that it’s the end your coming out the end bead. You want to go down that side bead, okay and then you want to add. String three beads and then go back through that side bead. Going in that opposite end where this thread is coming out. Pull tight. Okay and that is gonna be the first unit of that second row. And then from here you want to go through that end bead. And now you just want to string two beads. And you want to go up that middle side bead. Pull tight. Okay and you just wanna go back down that unit. So go through that middle bead back down the side bead and then through that end bead. And down that side bead right there in the middle. And we’re just gonna
create another unit here. So stringing two beads. You’re gonna go through that end bead. Okay and this is gonna
create another unit. And you’re gonna go down that middle side bead there. And out that end bead. Pull tight. And this is creating your
second row, threading the weave. You’re just creating it unit by unit. So all the way down the length you’re just gonna wanna add two beads. Now we’re going up that middle side bead. Pull tight. And you can go out. And down that side bead. Back through that end bead. And then down that middle bead. Middle side bead. Okay so I’m just gonna
go ahead and continue. Just adding two beads and making my units all
the way down this length. Okay so if you’re running out of thread I’m just gonna show you how to end and then how to add thread while you’re making your piece. So to end it here if you’re running out of room or running out of thread. Bring your needle through the thread in between two beads and then just bring it
up through that loop that’s created and pull tight. You can do that a couple times. That needle through that loop. Pull tight. And that’s just gonna create (mumbles). If you want you can weave, after that you can weave
through a few beads. Okay and you just take your scissors and trim that thread. Okay and then you just
grab a new piece of thread. Then just thread your needle. And do the same thing
and bring your thread doubled up just bring the ends together. And just tie a knot. So your thread is doubled up and your needle is just right there in the center. And then just to start back up you want to do the same thing. I’m just gonna bring my needle between two beads, the thread, and then bring your needle
just through that loop. And pull tight. Okay and again I like to go through some beads. And that’s why I do it the row above where I want to start adding beads again. Go through some beads. Here we go, that’s a little hard to get
through some of the beads ’cause the thread is getting
a little tight inside there. So you pick these pliers to
kind of help you through. Okay and then we’ll be
coming out that last bead. Okay and now we can just
continue adding our beads. So add two. Go up the center. That side bead. Or that middle. Okay and then down the side bead. Okay and then back down
that middle side bead. Okay and take some scissors and you can just cut that tail. There… You’re just gonna continue
until you reach the end. Okay as you can see I’ve created both rows and this is about a seven inch length and at the end here if you want to end it same thing. I’m just gonna go out the bead. If you want to just put
it between to beads, the thread between two beads and then just put your
needle through that loop and pull tight. And I can do that one more time. Through the loop and pull tight. And I go through just a few beads. Okay and then you just
wanna trim that tail. Right and there you have a nice basic right angle weave length that you can use in a bracelet, necklace, or any design you choose. (upbeat music)
