Rootbeer Float Braid

Braid number 52:

Brown and Beige Bead Braid

I wanted to make a bead braid that combined the colors of red wine and white wine, but when you're looking at the tubes of seed beads at the bead store, it's difficult to tell how the beads will actually look once they're strung and braided. I think I got the right color beads for the 'white wine' part of this, but the 'red wine' beads are a bit too orange/brown, so together the colors look less like a wine flight and more like a rootbeer float. It's still pretty, and I like rootbeer floats, it's just not what I was actually going for.
