Victorian Beading

At first I thought this beading style was another type of French Beading, but I've since discovered it's actually Victorian beading. They're similar, but French Beading is created with the wires twisting at each row end, whereas Victorian beading is more like Right Angle Weave.

I just love the wonderful 3D animals that can be made with this weave, they just look so good. They're very much like the Beadies that's popular with kids, but this is a bit more difficult and creates three dimensional objects instead of just flat ones.

I'll have to do some more French beading soon too!
