I have just watched the entire tutorial. Wow, what a cool design, quite complexe, too. I have to start collecting  size 8 seedbeads so I can make these, they are wonderful. The tutorial is foolproof, and no way you can make these just by looking at the picture. 

Thanks a lot for sharing this, Gwen, I can't wait to get started on this. Big Smile

Thank you Karen.  It was a great learning experience for me, finding out how DNA is coded.  I learned all about bacteria and enzymes and such.  I think science is cool.
