Following a beautiful shirt I purchased recently, the ethnic motives very much inspired me. I knew I had to bead some jewelry to fit the shirt. The paisley drops seemed to be one of the many good options. The fact I already made one a few years ago, encouraged me to choose this option among all other possibilities. It's been years I haven't beadwoven with brick stitch! During beadwork, I gradually chose which color will follow next row, with no planning ahead. Happy with the result and process which has a bit of freeform relaxing beading. Will try to post the shirt picture one day.

After last trial, this time the pair is symmetric. The central crystal is shaped asymmetrically as opposed to the last pair I made.

Pierrette came to visit and loved the Flower spiral bracelet designed by Petrova Zinaida, published in the Russian book: MODELI IZ BISERA: POVSEDNEVNYE I VECHERNIE (p.75).
On the 21.5.2008, I beaded Petrova Zinaida's spiral as a bracelet (at the bottom in the picture below) following Naki's flower spiral (at the top below) to understand better how they differ from each other.
Back to this spiral after 4 years, I decided to bead a bangle for Pierrette, to avoid closure struggles. While closing the spiral to a bangle was quiet a challenge here, I made almost right, but not there yet!
Finally, here are some gorgeous presents Pierrette brought me from a Paris fair dedicated to help people suffering from some specific sickness I can't remember.
I would never guess that the bag below is especially made to carry a tart!!! What an original and beautiful present! Lucky to have such a generous aunt with good taste :-)
