This is a much more successful flat Cellini spiral. The pattern that goes about halfway across and stops isn’t a mistake. It’s an experiment to try to bring some freeform element into the beading. I’m kinda liking it.
I fell in love with freeform beading after many years of dabbling with all manner of media. My fascination with seed beads goes back to my childhood. My mom, a Cub Scout den mother, started me on a bead loom when I was about 8, so coming back to seed beads was like coming home. You can find more of my work at http://bebopbeads.artfire.com
