Okay, I should just follow instructions. Color me stubborn! But I love these beads, and wanted to give it a try – those beads on the edge are a great matte ab root beer brown. They’re too big, though, they really need to be the same size as the internal herringbone rows, the green beads. I’ll probably try this again, but not now — and next time, following the directions to the letter! This attempt was so poor, the blurry picture is apt!
