The Beaded Borromean Link is a set of three rings (rectangles or other shapes), woven together into a single symmetric piece of art. The three rings are collectively linked despite the fact that no two of them are linked to each other. Learn to make squares, rectangles, hexagons, and other shapes of beaded link components. You will learn to weave cubic right-angle weave in a long cable, and how to turn corners with this stitch. You will also learn how to connect the beginning and end of your CRAW cable. As a beaded bead, the Beaded Borromean Link has a hole through its center, plus many 1mm holes, so you can also string it through any of the components. You can also use the links as beaded beads in other jewelry designs, including necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and pendants. Work with large or small seed beads to make the links different sizes.
The tutorial is 13 pages, including over 80 illustrations and photographs. The tutorial is a PDF file that gives detailed instructions for making Borromean links in three shapes. You can see the first page, including the materials list, in the second image above.
