lariat using take beads

Like I said in the previous post, take(ta-kay) beads resembles bamboo, so this is what they call these long, twisted beads in Japan.

The start of the lariat is made using the ladder stitch and then the bulk of the lariat is made using the herringbone stitch.

The fringe is put on after you make the lariat itself.

That looks very interesting. I have never seen anything like that. It is so cute with the "fringed flowers"!!!

I think that is the best part of this lariat, Beadexplorer!

Take care.

i was looking through your archives and found several of them really nice. What do you do with them after you finish making them anyway? *curious*

I keep them in a container to use. :)

Thanks for asking. Take care.
