Posted by Picasa Square stitch with fringe. I'm a great fan of loomed beadwork but weaving off loom threads makes me crazy. Square stitch has much of the look of loom work, (the beads sit one under another) without the weaving off - and with incredible strength because of the number of times the thread goes through each bead. This piece was done with #10 Czech beads with terrible irregular holes.
I got half-way through an earlier attempt and had to give up and start again. The ends are going to be redone and shortened, so there is no closure showing at the moment.
