In this tutorial, learn how to frame square beads together which creates the effect of beads appearing as though trapped within a net.
This technique should also work with other flat surfaced beads but depending on the thickness and shape of the beads it might bring out a very different effect from the one shown here. Here I used eight 14mm square facetted beads of 5mm thickness for a 6” long bracelet. You’ll probably need more or less depending on size.
For this tutorial, we’ll be experimenting with the use of bead tip/calottes to finish off the bracelet. Bead tip/calottes is one way you can finish of a hand beaded bracelet neatly.
