Black and Gold Bead Braid

I seem to have worked out most of the bugs in my bead braiding process. This braid is nearly perfect, if you ask me. It uses these great matte-finsih glass beads in black and metallic gold. Nearly everybody who sees this braid in person says , "Wow."


Black and Gold Edo Yatsu

I used the edo yatsu round braiding pattern, like I normally do for these bead braids, with a simple "XO XO XO XO" color pattern. Instead of metal end caps, I made short loops of beaded Fireline at endes to hold the toggle clasp.
