Reply To: Student’s Braids


I will be calling this braid “Inside About Out.” It wasn’t pretty as I discovered a bit late I was only using 2 not 4 packages of Metallic Fiber! Two are Ancient Gold and two are bright Gold. Oh well from there I struggled but played along the way. I placed 15/0 (dark brown) on 2 cords (with copper iris tear drops), opaque pear 11/0 with white fresh water pearls and Molton Tortoise (grey/orange) with semi-flat copper iris fresh water pearls, and lastly matte galvanized copper 11/0. I learned the pearls have to be round as some of those I used look awkward with a back facing out. Also those tear drops were just too much. Overall I love the idea and will do one more before Saturday (fingers crossed).
