Flat Sprial Beadwork with Millefiori Beads

I knew this was going to be tricky, but I didn't realize how tricky.  I made two bracelets last night using my favorite glass beads, which are Millefiori beads.  I love their colors and how beautiful they look when making jewelry pieces.

On the first bracelet I used a Flat Sprial bead stitch, which I had to adapt for the size of the beads.  This bracelet was all about the color red that needed to pop out of the clear Millefiori bead.  Well, I accomplished that, but I did not like going thru two of the beads and will be redoing that bracelet today.

 The second bracelet was using an outstanding green Millefiori bead and this time I went thru only one bead.  It came out so much better than the first one and that is why I decided to redo the first one.

I am now selling on a wonderfully fun and exciting new online shop platform called TheCraftStar.  Unlike the bigger guy "E", it is more personal and the people who operate it have been wonderful.  I am still using the same shop name "Ivonnardona's Creations", so come on by and check us out.

I'm running a Valentine's Sale offering 15% off anything in my shop; just use VALENTINE15 as the coupon code.
