West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Helix Spiral


I decided to have another go at the Helix Spiral Pattern.  I have made these before but always with 3mm pearls in 3 colours but this time I decided to mix it up and used 3mm white pearls, 4mm blue cubes and 3x4 mm silver faceted rondelles annd with pale blue size 11 seed beads between.

I love the result and best of all it grows sooooo quickly.  I made earrings to match with just one of each bead on a ball-top head pin and fastened onto Eurowire earring findings.

Here is a close-up of the pattern
