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.
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.
