Spirals, spirals and more spirals

So, I finished the "zulu bracelet" and the "flat spiral" bracelet But then I realized I'd given away the" single spiral rope" and another type of "Dutch spiral", without taking photos. So I'll make these two types again. I also discovered I still hadn't made the "cellini spiral", and "peyote spiral", so I'll make these soon as well. There is also another spiral I'd never seen before which was just called "spiral rope".

I decided to make a spiral button for the clasp as well. I love the way it turned out!

I've started the "single spiral rope" and I've nearly finished the 3d teddy bear. Then I'll make some more spirals. You can see them all on my website

Beaded Spirals

I've made so many different types of beaded spirals, and I've now discovered a new one! This new spiral is called the "Flat Spiral". I'll be making it soon.

The ones I've already made are: "Dutch Spiral", "Spiral Netting", "Aussie Spiral", "Russian Spiral" and "Double Spiral Rope". A couple I meant to do at some stage but never got around to doing were: "Triple Spiral Rope", "African Helix" and the "Cellini Spiral". I'll get around to them all at some stage, but I'm always finding other beading projects to do. Currently I'm making my second 3D beaded teddy bear from, and I'm alternating that with my first "Zulu" Beaded Bracelet. It's not often I make more than one of each item, but I loved the teddy bear so much, I just had to keep one for myself.

You can see all my work on my web site Craft Cove

So next on my list will be the "flat spiral".
