Diagonal Weave Video

NEW! Check out Maria's video showing how to do the Diagonal Weave. It's a little known 'gerdany' technique with immense possibilities. It starts off with a foundation and then repeats a 3-bead by 2-bead sequence for a really neat diagonal weave. It can be done with the same-sized beads or Maria's version with larger beads for a textured edge.

This was filmed at this spring's Creativ Festival so you get a peak at the grand booth. Besides the close-ups of the steps, its full of beadweaving tips and tricks. Enjoy!

Maria will be demonstrating this technique using Swarovski crystals during the Fall 2012 Creativ Festival at the Swarovski Crystal Rock 'n Roll Pavilion.
