Very nice.  Like the way you ended with the black and white beads; ties in the color of the beads under the blue highlight spiral.  It's nicely balanced (color and texture).

Thanx Ottercat!

I'm looking forward to your next gallery post. Although I don't understand your special way of loom beading. I don't even know anything about ordinary loomwork. I'll have a look at it when my internet connection improves.

Thank you for asking, there is no loom involved.  I developed a stitch because I couldn't find a loom to work an earlier piece that wasn't a loom friendly shape (celtic eagle) which I'll post later.  Currently writing up a handbook  for that stitch, because in the last 14 years I've been using it, I haven't found another like it.  If you're interested, let me know and I'll email you a copy once I'm finished.

Stunningly elegant!  I'd love a copy of the handbook when you've completed it.
