Twisted Beaded Fringe: What am I doing wrong

Oh darn, I can't where I saw an example, and it's not the beaded Amulet
purses book:

I string on size 11 seed beads, about 6 inches worth, and then twist
clockwise.  Keeping it twisted, I go back up through the same base
bead. Some twisting occurs, but I am not happy with it.

I am using nymo, should I try something else?  The effect I am after
similar to the fringe done by Wendy Hicks, although hers looks plaited
to me.

Also, has it been extra quiet lately?  Are people taking the summer
off? Boo hoo.

Happy Beading,

Rose

I'd be very interested in hearing the answer to this one as well--Twisted
Bead Fringe is driving me batty.

        I was just about to post the same question!

        Actually, I really don't understand how they stay twisted
        at all, I've just seen how they look and I really like it.

        Could someone post or e-mail some instructions?!

                thanks,

                        Leah

I am working on the final part of a loom work piece from ***ia 's
video.  The trick is to put on about 10 to 12 beads and them back stitch
through the last bead.  This helps to hold the twist in the fringe.  When
your done with the fringe hold the string up and start to twist.  Then
when you bring it down it will start to twist, a little assistance maybe
needed.

On ***ia Blakelock's video (from Victorian Videos and available in lots
of bead stores) she shows how to do this fringe: As you thread the fringe
beads, backstitch through a bead every so often. It looks like she did it
every 1/2 inch or so. Then, when you twist the fringe, it stays twisted. I
haven't tried this yet myself, but the technique looked good to me! Good
luck!
