Bead Weaving

Half the fun of beading is finding a stitch that is versatile and experimenting with different materials. The Single Spiral stitch is easy to do and can be woven with chips, seed beads, Swarovski crystals and pearls, large gems and just about anything you find that interests you. Color combinations are endless, as well. Sometimes, the best designs occur at 10 o'clock at night when you want to bead and you have to work with what's on hand. Those are the pieces of mine that are copied!
