Return of the Bead Braid

It's been a while since I've done one of these bead braids, but I still had two full sets of beads left over in my box of beading supplies. The last beaded necklace I did in black and gold came out so well, that I decided to do a new one, but this time in glossy translucent beads instead of matte opaque beads. I used the same "houndstooth check" color pattern of "BG GG GB BB" with the edo yatsu braiding patterm that I used for this other braid to create those large areas of solid color.


Braid 66, Black and Gold

The tension on this braid seemed really strange, but maybe it was just that I was out of practice in this type of braiding. I'm happy with the way the braid came out and will probably wind up giving this one as a gift.
