So following on from last week…Those of you who know me know how much I love spirals. Nature is bursting with spirals.

Well, beaded jewelry also comes with many spirals, Russian, Peyote, Simple, Chenille, Ndebele, to name just a few. The amazing thing for me with these is how fantastically different they can all be by the use of different sizes, shapes & types of beads, and they stitching that can make a gentle curve, a shaggy look, or something very tight and symmetrical. I love ’em all. Ilove making them and looking at them. Did I tell you how much I love spirals! 🙂
