They are fun to make. It is a Russian Spiral stitch woven with bugle and seed beads. Once I get it started I can bead and watch "Dancing with the Stars" at the same time!
I know when I first started beading, I was so intrigued with the Russian Spiral stitch. I couldn't imagine how you got the beads to spiral. Once I learned the stitch, the next challenge was to find interesting ways to work with different materials and create new looks.
If you already know how to do the Russian Spiral, have fun with it and create new color options and designs. The sky's the limit!
