Beads in a square pattern

I saw a piece that used a similar techinque and I was inspired. So I took the idea and ran with it. Love the result. Apologize for the picture quality, still trying to get the hang of my new camera! 

Earrings are in the same design, almost.

So I tried:

I liked the concept, but when I had finished it, I didn't like it. 

So I used Kuminhio braids and braided with blue and metallic tread with the beads in regular intervals. The result: 

These are three strands of Kumihimo braided strands that are then braided. 
Finally, I got the look I was looking for!
