Step-By-Step Instructions

In this PotomacBeads Tutorial, Allie shows how to make a beaded bead into a fun disco style dangle earring using a right angle weave.
Using a size 12 needle, put a stop bead on about four feet of thread, leaving just enough thread to tie off at the end. Pick up four gemstones each separated by a seed bead. Bring the needle back through three of the gemstones and pull to form into a loop.
Add two seed beads, a Montee crystal and two more seed beads, bring the needle back through the gemstone. Make sure the crystal is facing up. That will complete the first decorated right angle weave unit.
Follow along with Allie in the Montego Earrings tutorial to watch the steps needed to complete your earrings.
