Beaded Beads II
These beads were designed by Diane Fitzgerald, and are from the April/May 2012 issue of Beadwork. Aside from a finicky start to the thread, they worked up easily; to give them a firm shape I stuffed a bit of cotton between the two halves before sewing them together. I made the one on the left first, although the pink and green are not as bright as I wanted. The spiral design made me think of peppermint candies, so of course I had to make a second one in red and white. I'll think of something Christmasy to do with it.
