I created the bracelet using 2-needle RAW or right angle weaving technique and this is how 1 x 1 RAW is weaved. Using 2 needles, you create 4 sides of the beadwork, crisscrossing the thread on the 4th bead. From the basic 1 x 1 RAW you can then create variations and add beads onto the sides.
For my Swarovksi Square Bracelet, I added seed beads on each side of the square Swarovski. To create a distinction or separate the patterns, I included a round Swarovski and used the seed beads as its sides, still using the same weaving technique from start to finish.
Now, you too can create something similar. From the basic RAW, you can play with different shapes and colors of beads and create your own pattern.
