About this design:

Beautiful Brazil Blue Agate (from LB of course!) and, yes, the ubiquitous (OMG, what does that mean!) spiral!

I should really be doing the ironing & putting my beading stuff away, it's strewn all over the dining room table at the moment but I'd much rather be doing something USEFUL on here! The ironing can wait til tomorrow! :)

Components:

Brazil Blue Agate, Sterling Silver

    Gemme Designs says:

    Fantastic!! Perfect spirals too :) May I ask what tool you use to make them so nice and perfect. I usually use my pliers to make spirals, but if I use pliers with some grasping power, it leaves marks on my spirals and if I use pliers with smooth tips, they keep slipping out! Help! :)

    And because I’m in a learning mood…I looked it up:
    Ubiquitous– adj. Being or seeming to be everywhere at the same time; omnipresent
