Hollywood squared

Standing ovation
By Anna Elizabeth Draeger
Nothing turns heads like the flash of Swarovski Elements, and these fashionable bangles sport a solid ring of those eye-catching crystals along its outer edge. The spoke-like structure provided by Miyuki Tila beads or Czech two-hole tile beads stitched in cubic right-angle weave (Online Basics or Videos) elevates the design, while the inner ring of pearls provides a comfortable base layer that makes this bracelet easy to wear.

Spring fling
By May Brisebois
Combine fiber-optic glass and gemstone beads with crystal briolettes to make a lovely crossweave necklace reminiscent of cherry blossoms. In crossweave technique, two needles cross through a bead (or beads) so the needle that was on the right side is now on the left side and vice versa.

Captured cosmos
By Jenny Van
Use crossweave technique to create a two-sided beaded bead as colorful and intricate as an interstellar cloud.

In crossweave technique, two needles cross through a bead (or beads) so the needle that was on the right side is now on the left and vise versa.
