Another Bead Braid

If something goes well the first time I try it, I usually try it a second time to demonstrate my success is repeatable.


Braid 41, bead braid 2

Once again, I made eight strands of seed beads on Fireline, then braided them together. I started with more beads, so this braid is about eight inches longer than the first bead braid. I need to get some findings for this to turn it into a necklace, as I did with the first one.

I'm also in the middle of a bigger braiding project, doing all six of Jacqui Carey's patterns from her "Beginners Guide to Braiding" in red and white. I'm on the last braid, but it's the most annoying, so who knows how long it will take me.
