Spring Braiding

This spring my braids appear to belong to the same color family. Interesting, as they were made from two dissimilar and unlikely materials.

Desert Nights is made with raffia, wrapped with a very soft and smooth cotton yarn which was then covered with seed bead bands. I love the way the raffia tassels stand straight out.

Gold and Wisps is made from plastic yarn. It, too, is wrapped in a wonderful soft and smooth cotton yarn and topped with a band of beads. The ‘wisps’ are made with C-Lon (there are just too many things that that wonderful cord can be used for).

I’m happy with them. Now it’s time to start making another braid. Think we’ll deviate from the ‘gold/beige’ family of colors.
