You may have heard of CRAW, but what about PRAW? Prismatic Right Angle Weave, or PRAW, is an expansion of the Cubic Right Angle Weave (CRAW) technique that can be used to create all kinds of beaded art and jewelry. While CRAW uses the geometry of a cube, PRAW uses the geometry of the prisms to create beaded ropes, beaded beads, charms, and spectacular three-dimensional beadwork.

Join 2015 Beadwork Designer of the Year Cindy Holsclaw, a bead artist with a background in science and mathematics, and learn the basics behind this geometric stitch. In this one-hour webinar, Cindy will start with a brief review of CRAW, and then she will discuss how to weave the basic PRAW stitch and how to use this stitch to create basic beaded ropes and beaded beads. Cindy will also discuss how PRAW can be used to create beaded charms, flowers, and dimensional beadwork, and she will show several examples of PRAW in finished beaded art.

Learn what makes PRAW very similar to CRAW, and also what makes it different. Explore the geometry behind this stitch, and how PRAW uses different shapes such as triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons, and more. Discover the many possible kinds of beadwork that can be woven with this stitch, from beaded bracelets to beaded beads, simple components to full-length necklaces, and much more!

In this web seminar you will learn:

  • How to weave the basic PRAW stitch and explore how PRAW is both similar to and different from CRAW.
  • All about the geometry behind the name "Prismatic Right Angle Weave."
  • Tips for creating basic PRAW beaded beads and beaded ropes, and how to incorporate them into your own jewelry designs.
  • Techniques for using PRAW to create beaded charms and three-dimensional beadwork.
  • How to use PRAW in your jewelry designs inspired by spectacular jewelry design examples.
  • And much more!

Not worth it.
Very dissaspointed with the video. I thought she was going to show us several ways to at least make a necklace. All I got out of it was she showed pieces of jewlery that other people have made. She also commented that there was pdf files that came with this video that would help us make some jewelry. No pdf files were offered. Could not find them at all. I am trying to get my money back so I can use it to download something that I can learn from. Review by Janet (Posted on 6/9/2016)

How to stitch prismatic right-angle weave
The video was excellent. I always hesitate signing up for these, as my computer is finicky saving them. This one worked just fine./
However, my computer lost my saved link to the handouts, and I have searched. I sent an email regarding this, just now, but would appreciate something.
Prismatic right-angle weave has eluded me. I can see the diagrams and understand them clearly, but I have trouble seeing the beads. Have to try with different colors next.
