Wednesday Worktable

Still working on the Cellini spiral project. Working the large tubular spiral components into a design is challenging, so I'll be doing a lot of playing, and undoing, most likely!

Yesterday afternoon I decided to put some freeform peyote ruffled "skirts" on the ends of the Cellini spiral tubes. I threw in some off-white freshwater pearls at the edges of the ruffles.

These skirts are supposed to hide the freeform peyote connectors I design to connect the 2 tubes to a focal bead.

I got a little bit of stitching done on the peyote connections last night, and will work on them more today.

Isn't that focal bead amazing?!

These are the beads I am planning to use in my freeform peyote.

Off to start playing!

I love it so far!! I've only done celini spiral once - also had a hard time figuring out what to do with it. Wound up using it as a pendant/ focal bead and strung it on wire with seed beads and crystals. It's not my favorite necklace - I like yours much better!!!

Susan, using the spiral tube as a focal sounds like a wonderful idea!
