I just love making Flat Spiral Bracelets! A customer came into the Bead Shop where I work and showed me how to do the Flat Spiral weave and I think I'll make one in every possible color! I've made about 10-12 so far! They are so easy and so much fun! Here's an example of one that I made for Christmas:I used 6mm Swarovski bicone crystals for the center, 4mm crystals for the edges, and 11/0 Delica seedbeads for the weave. Isn't it pretty? The next time I make one I promise to take pictures as I go. I think you can find demos on several websites like Artbeads.com or FusionBeads.com. If you haven't tried seedbead weaving before but would like to give it a try this is the pattern to do! Have fun with it and soon you'll be creating one in every possible color and combo just like me! And all your friends and relatives will be Oohing & Ahhing too!
