Awesome! I love this one it speaks to me of the sea and I am a fish star sign. That spiral is beautiful. Personally I might have tried to pick up that really dark blue in it on the bracelet a little more but then again I am half blind and beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. I would love to try this kind of thing. Maybe after I've done with my [link] I'll give a cuff a try. I am still new to beading and seeing all of these wonderful different things you can do with beads and stitches has me enthralled a'new. Thank you for showing and offering the patterns.

Wow! Love your dragon. That will be one splendid piece when it's done! As for the bracelet. I'm glad you like it. I posted instructions and pattern for it in my etsy store under ellejewelry.

Just really takes my breath away. I love your choice for the opaque beads.. the spiral is such a fantastic contrast.

Thanks so much! I had wanted to double up the ripple pattern for so long. The spiral was the perfect excuse...

Thanks so much! I really enjoy the 3D effects one gets with two different sizes of beads...
