Cubic Right Angle Weave Stitch Earrings - Jewellery Making Tutorial

Designed by: Edyta Rogowska

Difficulty: Intermediate

Rating:

Fancy beaded earrings are one of the most popular things to make amongst others. Would you like to have these in your collection? If so, Edyta Rogowska has prepared a tutorial for you in which she will show you how to make Cubic Right Angle Weave earrings with rivoli. They may look complicated, but don't be afraid at the start, Edyta will show you how it's done! 

In this tutorial we will once again face the Cubic Right Angle Weave stitch. This time we will make spectacular teardrop earrings with Bonny crystals. I will show you how to get an acute angle in a C-raw stitch. And yes, you are right, we will count again, although this time definitely less!!

Materials Used;

Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery! <3

Step 1

Wrapping the Rivoli Crystals

We wrap the crystals following Weronika Kaczor's tutorial, which you can find by CLICKING HERE. The only difference is that we start the braid from 22 TR15 / 0 beads.


We thread 22 TR15 / 0 beads on a thread about 120cm long and close in a circle passing through the first four beads. We leave the "tail" about 10-15cm long, which will later be used to finish the work. Pull the thread gently so that the braid does not fall apart.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 2

We add one TR15 / 0 bead between the previously strung beads. We stick a needle into every second bead. Remember that at the end of the round we pass the needle through two beads - the last from the previous row and the first added.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 3

In the next round we add one TR11 / 0 bead between the ones from the previous row. Finishing the lap we go through two beads - the last 15/0 and the first newly added 11/0. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 4

Between the newly added 11/0 beads, we add one 15/0 bead. We finish the round by passing through two beads. We pull the thread a little tighter. The braid begins to form a "basket".

Step 1

Step 2

Step 5

We put a crystal inside the braid and add one 15/0 bead between the ones from the previous row. Gently hold the crystal with your finger so that it does not move. We finish the round by passing through two beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 6

We move the needle to the row in which we added size 11/0 beads and between them we add one TR11 / 0. We finish the round by passing through two beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 7

We go with the needle to the back of the braid to the "tail". We make a double knot. The end of the tail is passed between the beads as far as possible from the knot, and the excess is cut off. The second part of the thread (the one we braided the crystal with) we return to beads 11/0. Later in the work, it will be used to connect the crystal with a cubic tear.

How to Make A Cubic Tear 

From TR 11/0 beads we weave a string of 14 cubes according to the following tutorial for a bracelet, which you will find by CLICKING HERE.

Step 1

Step 3

Step 6

Step 7

Step 9

When the string is the right length, we thread 3 beads and stick a needle into the bead from which the thread comes out (as if we were starting the construction of the next cube) and go through all the newly added beads once again. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 10

These beads will create a teardrop for us. In order for it not to be flabby we have to "tie" it to each of the walls of the last cube. To do this, we go through the nearest base bead with a needle, and then down through all the beads that make up the side wall. At the end of the lap, we insert the needle into the bead we started with (for ease of use the beads forming the top have been numbered and the walls have been marked with a colour)

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 11

We go to the opposite side of the rope and repeat the steps from the previous step on the opposite wall.

Step 12

In this step, we go through the apex beads and "tie" them to the third wall (beads marked in the pictures in blue).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 13

We still have the base of the cube. We thread the thread through all the apex beads and the base beads (marked in yellow). We make one and a half laps so that the thread comes out of the bead opposite the top.

Step 7

Step 14

After completing the above steps, the tip of our future tear should look like this.

Step 1

Step 15

In this step, we begin to create the second part of the cord. We add three beads and stick a needle into the bead, from which the thread comes only from its other side. Then we go down through two beads, take one bead and go through the needle with the first newly added bead and again down two.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 16

We go to the other side of the rope.

Step 1

Step 17

We go through the needle through two beads up and through the last of the three added in the previous step. We take one bead and close the wall, passing through the same beads once again.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 18

We go through the beads to the other side of the rope. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 19

When you look from below, you'll notice that the newly added beads formed the base of the cube (I marked it in colour) on which we can again create a C-raw string.


Step 1

Step 20

We weave a rope with a length of 12 cubes

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 21

When both parts of the rope are of equal length, we bring the ends together and join together by adding the missing cube beads. Finally, go to the "tail" left at the beginning of the work, make a double knot, thread the ends of the threads between the beads (as far as possible from the knot), and cut off their excess.

Step 22

Combining The Elements

Place the previously braided crystal inside the teardrop and sew the two elements together. To sew, we will use the thread that we left behind the crystal.

With the sticking out 11/0 beads, entwining the crystal we connect with every other bead inside the teardrop. We start with the bead from which the thread comes out and go through the seventh bead of tears and again into the bead from which we began. Joining can be strengthened by passing through the beads twice. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 23

We pass the thread through the beads to the ninth teardrop bead and repeat the steps from the first step, connecting it with the next bead entwining the crystal. We go to the eleventh bead. Repeat these five more times (in total, we combine seven pairs of beads).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 24

When we combine the last pair, we add one TR15 / 0 bead between the string beads. The beads fill all the gaps inside the teardrop.

Step 25

How to mount the studs onto our earrings with CRAW

When we are done, we pass the thread through the beads to the tip of the teardrop.


Step 1

Step 26

We take two 15/0 beads, pass the needle through the hole in the studs and take another two 15/0 beads. We stick a needle into the size 11/0 bead, the one from which the thread comes out. We go through all the newly added beads once more to strengthen the connection. Finally, we make a knot between the beads. We conduct the thread as far as possible from the knot and cut off its excess.

Step 27

By the same principle, we create a second earring and it's ready! You now know how to make cubic right angle weave earrings! Share your version on our Facebook Group.
