This tutorial on honeycomb weave explains how to make bracelets and rings with beads and thread. Honeycomb weave is a flat angle weave that creates a dense but flexible fabric of seed beads. It has large holes that you can fill with crystals or leave them open for a lacy look. Honeycomb weave is like right angle weave (RAW), but the beads fit together better, and it is made with other angles. If you like RAW and want a new challenge, you’ll love this. However, you don’t need to know RAW to follow this tutorial.

This tutorial is suitable for advanced beginners to intermediate bead weavers with enough design possibilities to entertain advanced beaders. Included are lots of variations on the basic stitch and a sheet of honeycomb graph paper so you can make up your own designs with honeycomb weave.

The tutorial is 17 pages, including over 90 illustrations and photographs. The tutorial is a PDF file that gives complete step-by-step instructions for how to make the bracelets. At the end of this tutorial, I show how to make the center medallion into the blue and gold finger ring for when you want a quick and easy project for instant gratification! I also included some tips for making matching earrings.

This listing is for the tutorial only. Materials are not included. The tutorial includes a materials list (shown here in the photos), but if you are a bead weaver, you probably already have everything you need. No fancy shapes required! In fact, you can stitch honeycomb weave with just one size bead in two colors. For the jewelry shown, that one size would be 11° seed beads, but you could use any size you want to scale the weave larger or smaller. All of the other sizes are optional and we use them to embellish the weave and create variations on the basic stitch.
