Since I don't loom, I used square stitch. I used Toho Treasures for the cream and turquoise and Delicas for the copper and bronze. Toho cylinder beads are just a little bigger than Delicas so I had a neat surface texture contrast that I decided to exploit. Because there are an odd number of beads in each row, I ended every row with a group of three beads instead of a group of two. Stitching back and forth means that there is a bit of unevenness in the way the beads sit. I guess the best way to describe what I was after is a bit of a cobblestone texture. I also used smoke Fireline which took away the yellowy quality to my cream beads and gave them a rather antique look.
