Although I have used 6lb Fireline as my thread of choice, it may be possible to use alternative beading threads if you prefer. I have only created this design using Fireline, however; other threads may affect the rigidity of your final piece.

The wire gauge of the jump ring chosen should not exceed 1mm; thicker jump rings will not fit through the size 6 bead.

Although all of the threadpaths used for this pattern are illustrated within the tutorial, some prior working knowledge of right angle weave would be an advantage when undertaking this project.

One website suggested for information on Right Angle Weave is:
