Step-By-Step Instructions

Learn how to do a right angle weave chain in this video tutorial from PotomacBeads, The Hanging Garden Earrings designed by Anna are an elegant choice to show off your style.
Put on a size 12 needle onto the thread and tie on a stop bead. Add on a Quadratile, an 11/0, a round and another 11/0. Repeat four times. End the pattern with another Quadratile. Put on three 11/0s and go back through the diagonal hole of the Quadratile. Add a round surrounded by two 11/0s in between each tile. Add three 11/0s to the top of the last tile in the chain.
Sew in groups of 11/0s and crytals in between each Quadratile. Watch the Hanging Garden Earrings tutorial with Allie to see the steps in detail.
Using a right angle weave you will be building a chain of seed beads to form a loop with a crystal and wireguard at the top. Knot off the thread. Put on the earwire.
