First I loomed three strips in white lined AB beads, emerald green, teal and capri blue for an ocean look.
After reweaving the warp threads into the strips, I started braiding using the instructions from the video (thank you, James Tanton).
Ocean colors - I'm even reminded of waves here - request pearls. So I added one white button freshwater pearl on each of the crossings. That way they also keep the braid from slipping.
I'm really happy with the outcome, what do you think?
