2-Bead Netting Tutorial

I've had quite a few people ask me how to do 2-bead netting. So here's a tut. I'm not claiming to have invented this. Was just wondering what would happen if I left one bead out of the 3-bead netting.




Materials:
Two colors of size 11 seed beads (A-black and B-gold).
Beading needle
Nymo size D
String 6 beads as follows:

1A, 1B, 1A, 1B, 1A, 1B

Tie into a circle. Put needle through first A bead strung.

Pick up 1B and 1A (make sure to always string them on in this order), skip next
B and put needle through next A already strung. Repeat until desired length.

Basically your putting the needle through the A beads around and around. Always
put through the A bead immediately after the B bead you're skipping. That's all
there is to it.

I am so impressed with how professional this is!! Can you please explain how to end this and do the bracelet findings? I have difficulty with ending things.
I also really love the tiny bead bag and the deli poncho. I can't wait for your site to grow, asyou have wonderful items!!
Maybe you might want to do a video on how you do the beading?
anyway I wanted to thank you so much for your generosity with sharing your wisdom,
blessings, grace
