African Square Netting Stitch

This African square netting stitch bracelet has been finished for several weeks, but I just never got around to posting a picture of it before now. I wasn’t satisfied with how the photos looked. I tried several fabrics as background, but it seemed they were more of a distraction than an enhancement to the photo.

The design is from the book Zulu Inspired Beadwork by Diane Fitzgerald. The project in her book was a “Relaxation Mantle”, but I added two beaded beads and loops as a clasp. The beads are opaque black and matte white seed beads.

Here's a shot of the beaded bead toggles on mudcloth.
