I know I saw instructions for this method somewhere online in the last few weeks, but I can't find any trace of that tutorial now. Luckily I remembered the basics of the method from when I first read it. It's a three-strand plait (braid) with beads placed in the middle of the plait on every second cross. I already had quite a collection of coloured waxed cotton (and I found a few more colours in the dollar shop yesterday) and lots of beads of all kinds. Only certain shapes/sizes of beads work - some of them won't stay in place properly in the plait. So far I'm only really happy with the turquoise beads. But I think there will be some more good ones to unearth from my bead collection.
