A while ago I made a little dragonfly pendent from Swarovski elements and crystals. I needed a necklace to hang it on and decided to attempt the Russian Spiral from Seed Bead Stitching by Beth Stone.
I messed it up. The design uses size 8/0 and size 11/0 seed beads. Size 8/0 is the larger bead. I got them confused and so my spiral turned out larger, and less spirally... I noticed about a third of the way in, so thought I'd have a go at doing it the right way round to make a kind of focal point.
I really like it! I prefer the smaller spiral, both the way it looks and the colours (I know they're the same colours, but the white stands out more in this central part), but overall I like the change between the chunkier spiral and the more delicate one.
My only issue now is that I don't have any clothes that gold goes with! Why did I choose that colour scheme?
