Hi this is Megan with Beadaholique.com and I want to show you to add beads to a three strand braid. I'm going to show you two different ways that you can do this and I'm sure there are other ways to do it but this is two very easy ways the first way I'm going to show you is this one over here. I did a few so you can see what it looks like this is when you add a bead to the outside every time that you bring the outside to the center You can have your braid on your strings you can add a bead every time. This will save if you go ahead and put some on the on a string and all you're gonna do is move a bead up to the string before you bring it to the center everytime that is super quick and easy just slide a bead up and bring your string to the center you can see that's going to give you this stepped back and forth kind of zip zag look move the bead up and bring your bead to the center bead up and string to the center and make sure that your bead stays to the side and doesn't cross this next string to the center with your cord that's one way of doing it the other way of doing it is putting it on one side or the other every time you bring it to the center so I have done mine every time I bring my left string to the center I've put a bead up and on this one what I'm doing is actually making sure that my bead does cross that next cord so that it keeps it nice and separate so your string should go over the left cord into the center and then put your bead up and then you put the right cord to the center and then with the left cord again cross the center and then add the bead left cord into the center and continue that way and that gives you see that's what happens if you don't put your bead past that left cord. You want to make sure that it goes past the left cord so that you can get this kind of nice down the middle at an angle enclosed look to your bead and you can do them also on the right cord going to the center. Either way that'll just angle to the other side so it's two different looks and it's two different very easy ways to make a really simple basic braid look a lot fancier
