Look what my friends did!

My Color Swirls Tutorial came out in Beadwork Magazine for Jun/July and I've had such a great time seeing how other people have translated the design. Here are two of my blog buddies that created their own version:
The first is by Lois Moon my bead soup partner. She did a great ocean colorway in some bright blues. I like the way she varied the colors from wheel to wheel.

The second comes from Mari of Mis Amores. She did the Pomegranate version and it looks great!

Go grab your copy of the magazine and make your own!!
If you're not a seed beader, but want a version of the Color Swirls Bracelet, I've got Icy Turbulence in my shop right now (and it's on sale!). I could also make it in some different colors if you'd like :).
Okay, two more cool things:
1. My "Internationally Intriguing" treasury was feature on this blog. And for those of you who guessed James weren't too far off!
2. I'm going to start a new tutorial at the end of this month, what would you rather see, Persian Rugs or Baldacchino? Leave me a comment and let me know.


  1. Persian the design.
    Bead Happy!

  2. Oh please Persian Rugs! It is so pretty! I do have the magazine and Color Swirls is on my to do list!

  3. Hm - simple answer. Both. :)

  4. Yeah I have to go with Persian Rugs as well, very pretty design, just something about it.

  5. Persian Rugs.

    I love the work your students completed, this was very encouraging to me.

  6. Congratulations! I saw your project in the magazine and recognized you by your photo. It's a beautiful design. I'll definitely try it!
