The length of the braid depends on where you want your necklace to fall. I made my braid long enough so that the necklace could slip over my head. Measure and decide how long is long enough. When you get there, sew the ends together and trim off the excess. Save these scraps!
Sew your braid to your beaded strands. Once again, security over beauty, we are going to cover this up.
Let's cover it up fast! Remember those scraps I told you to save? This is why. Wrap them around the joint of our two pieces. I wrapped over my beginning and then stitched the end down.
So far nothing has come undone. Do the same with the other side, and wear with gusto. Bask in the compliments!
Here is one I made with wood beads too!
