The good thing about being a member of a society/guild/Yahoo Group is not only the like minded people you meet (and end up hanging out with), but the programs many offer. This month Houston Bead Society had one of its members teach us the Right Angle Weave (RAW) technique by creating a bracelet.
RAW is one of the few techniques that I have been able to teach myself and this program strengthened my skills. Now - arg!! - I have to have more crystals. I used a vintage glass button and a peyote loop as a closure. These little bracelets also work up quite fast and the variations are endless.
