Library Journal
In the first installment of Lark's new jewelry-making series, Gidez, a jewelry designer and instructor, considers the right-angle weave (RAW). Starting with flat RAW, in which beads are woven into square units, Gidez explores the use of this versatile stitch in jewelry design, including sections on increasing and decreasing, embellishing basic RAW units, and tubular RAW. Each project includes clear step-by-step directions, and most steps are accompanied by a diagram with the thread path clearly marked. The projects are small enough to be completed quickly yet substantial enough to give beaders new to RAW the opportunity to practice the skills the project is designed to reinforce. VERDICT Novice and intermediate crafters will appreciate Gidez's straightforward approach to RAW and the attractive variety of projects in which to practice their jewelry-making skills.
