    Really love this! Very eye-catching. It also gives me a little hope when I get the nerve to try this technique myself.

    Wow…beautiful beadweaving. I love the way you picked up and enhanced the colors in the fossil coral with the seedbeads. Also, as Jeanne commented, the segmenting of the herringbone spiral really makes this piece pop.
