I'm happy with How they turned out but I think I'd take care of any colour treatments before braiding a finished product.

Also, a little close up of a proof of concept experiment on today's project. Turns out, it's possible to braid around solid objects like this little ring. I'm not sure yet where this would be useful, but it's good to know that it's possible!

This time a round plait that will be really good for jewelry and cords in coming projects. these ones were made with 1/8 and 1/16 inch veg tan strips. Shown here undyed and untreated.
