I finally got it!

Open triangle and toggle, originally uploaded by Roberta Warshaw.

I have been busy teaching myself beadweaving stitches in what little spare time I have. I finally succeeded in the open triangle. I kept missing the “step up” much to my dismay. I think I can recognize where it is located now. I am fine when it doesn't move but having it move all over the place is a bit of a challenge. I screwed up quite a few of these babies. But here is a successful one. I hope to use this as some kind of component in my jewelry. I like to make small components and then play with them and combine them in different ways. I am not very good at planning jewelry designs ahead. I like to wing it. Let the work surprise me.

AWESOME! That looks so difficult!

It is just confusing. Especially when all the beads are the same color. It is easy to miss the place where you have to "step up to the next row.
