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! 🙂

Stitches - Peyote. Neither the serious nor hallucinogenic kind. The needle & thread with fabric & beads kind. Though some of my beady friend are actually very serious about their fabric & beads I try to be lighter and to divert my perfectionist tendencies...

Now I’m into “danglies”

Now I’m into “danglies”

So I'm back on the talking about earrings kick. I've amazed myself with the earring bug that got into me - both making and wearing them. When I was younger I would never wear anything but clips or posts. The idea of something 'dangling' down my neck gave me the creeps...
