Explore a type of CRAW that twists and coils! The Star Fragment Pendants feature star-shaped component woven with this unique variation of cubic right-angle weave. This technique expands on Gwen Fisher's Twisted CRAW technique to make a CRAW rope that not only twists, but coils like an old-fashioned telephone cord. The rope joins at the ends to make a delightful star-shaped component. One small coiled CRAW component pairs with round crystal pearls or stones to make a petite pendant, and two components join together for a larger statement pendant.
This pattern is appropriate for beaders who are proficient in cubic right-angle weave and who would like the challenge of learning a new variation on this stitch. Beaders who have mastered twisted CRAW are in great shape to try out this design. The pattern includes a detailed overview of the coiled CRAW method as well as new terminology to describe the unique features of the stitch. The detailed instructions in this pattern show how to make two different sizes of Star Fragment Pendants, and these components can also be incorporated into several other types of jewelry.
