Trying something new

Hello, everyone.

The sewing projects are at a break for the moment, and the beads have been calling me. I read an instruction on Dutch Spiral beading--think bracelets or necklaces--and decided to give it a try.

There is a full baggie of blue bead mix to do something with, and a cleared-off sewing machine table to do things on:

The bead mix in a condiment cup--love these square cups for beading. 

Some of them spread out on a rimmed lid

Used 6 pound Fireline for this one.

Work in progress.
I am surprised by the amount of texture the beadwork has with a fairly simple stitch. And no hair pulling because of large jumps in bead sizes being next to each other!
