I created a variation and then turned it into a necklace!
What do you think? Will this piece look good on your Valentine’s date? The necklace is detachable so you can do variations with how you want to use the beaded heart. You can use cord as a necklace or you can also use chains. But first let’s make the beaded heart.
The steps are really simple. All you need is a basic knowledge of right angle weaving technique. Follow the diagram how to add the beads and where the thread should pass.
Right Angle Weave Beaded Heart Pattern
At this point you have a flat right angle weave beaded heart. Secure the thread by passing back thru several beads and then make a knot. Repeat Step 1 – 11 and make a pair. Now, how to make it 3D?
Cut at least 25 inches thread. Take the 2 flat right angle beaded heart. Starting at the bottom beads slide in the thread connected by a bead like so.
Using right angle weave with 2 needles, cross both threads into a bead and pull the threads.
As you pull pass the threads into the next round beads. Repeat in this manner of weaving until you’ve gone all the around your flat right angle weave beaded heart and connected all the sides.
Add a little embellishment if you like and there you go! Your Right Angle Weave Beaded Heart
Explore, be creative and you’ll be surprised with how many variations you can do with the technique.
♥♥♥ Advance Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! ♥♥♥
