Encapsulate pearls or crystals inside colourful,
self-supporting 3-dimensional cubes. Strung on beading wire they make a dramatic necklace, or why not attach a jump ring for a subtler geometric pendant.
This project uses seed beads and is a great introduction to Cubic Right Angle Weave (CRAW) – or a chance to explore it further. You could easily replace the size 11 seed beads for beads of any size to create larger or smaller cubes.
