September 2007 Beaded 3-D Canary Bird Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month's project is a 3-D beaded canary bird Charm made with Japanese seed beads using the Right Angle Weave technique (RAW). Great as a fashion accessory or as a jewelry gift.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

    Add three blue beads on the top (red) string, crisscross the bottom (black) string through the last added bead. Continue to pass the red string (the one you just used to add new beads on) through the bottom blue bead from step 1 (shown where the red arrow is coming out from).
