Product Description

Twirling Waltz NecklaceWeave a sparkling, twisty necklace using coiled cubic right-angle weave! The Twirling Waltz Necklace necklace features a gorgeous Kaputt oval crystal surrounded by twisty triangular-shaped components that are woven with coiled CRAW.

In this class you will learn how to weave coiled CRAW; a variation of twisted CRAW that naturally twists and coils based on its specific thread path. Like traditional CRAW, coiled CRAW makes a supple rope that can be firmed up with additional embellishment, and this technique can also be used to make repeatable components and additional structural beaded forms.

Students will learn how to weave coiled CRAW, how to weave this stitch in right-handed and left-handed orientations, how to join the ends of a coiled CRAW rope together, a unique bezel for a Kaputt crystal, and how to connect all of these components together for a beautiful necklace.
