My newest necklace I finished today and started last night watching House on hulu. The light blue 6 strands of cotton string are braided with the triangle beads woven into the braid so that they don't move on the necklace. I reinforced the beads with 3 more strands strung through them, then that friendship bracelet knotting technique along the backside of the end beads. The length of the necklace is 14" long. I like the simplicity of it and I'm in love with bunting right now. Recently learning that it is called that. I used to just call it flag banners. but they are awesome.
