RIGHT ANGLE  WEAVE BRACELET
Right angle weave, or RAW as it is commonly called, is so named because the beads lie at right angles to one  another.  One of the easiest stitches to learn!  Right angle weave works up quickly by adding multiples of beads in a circular method with each stitch. Crystal embellishment results in a fluid, elegant bracelet.
