What are you most proud of? The quality of my work. It can take as long as an inch an hour to create this piece!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have good lighting and if you are doing this for the first time, it's a good idea to use beads in contrasting colors, so that it's easier for you to see which bead to pass the thread through. These tiny 15/0 beads can take some time getting used to.

This pattern looks very much like one I have seen in a magazine. It is illegal to use designs from magazines and sell the finished products without permission from the designer.

I am quite offended by your comment. Why do you assume that I copied this design? I learned beading from my mother in law back in 2012 and have never even opened up a beading magazine! I take pride in my creations and every one of them first starts with a vision in my head.

Ladybead: Most designers do not mind if one creates and sells their designs as long as you do not copy, distribute or teach their patterns to others without their permission. However, this design has been very popular for quite a few years, and, yes, it is ok to share the pattern.

The pattern is call Russian Wraparound spiral. It is the Russian Spiral with bugle beads added. You can find the pattern by googleing Russian Spiral.

That is out of this world! The colors are so pretty. I looked up the pattern, but didn't find anything as pretty as this. Perfect job.
