NOTES FROM DESIGNER:
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.
