16.2.08 A Flower spiral with a cabochon pendant

This project was a great therapy for this week in which I got a nasty virus.
The virus is gone and the spiral is completed!
This beautiful flower spiral was developed by Naki, a talented women in our bead commune.
This week, I did my first cabochon with a Medium vitrail (Green AB) Rivoli and delicas.
The result was so nice and the ring I made from it was almost completed. I only had to hide the threads.
I was so enthusiastic I succeeded making a cabochon after unpicking only once, I tried to made another one with a simple purple "nuggets" glass and Japanese 11 seed beads.
It came up quiet nice too.
I went to sleep and in the morning I came back to my new Rivoli cabochon, almost completed.
I then discovered huge holes in the sides!!!! Delicas were broken and the cabochon was ruined :(
I was so disappointed and couldn't understand how could that possibly had happened?!
Aposteriori, I discovered it was mistakenly smashed against the table and got bad hits.
My tiny hope was in that nuggets cabochon. I thought it may serve as a pendant, so I looked for a suiting necklace.
It didn't take long before the spiral flower popped up and then the therapy began. Monotonic but therapeutic, this is the way spirals are.
A new challenge arrived when I had to connect the cabochon to the spiral and a simple peyote strip didn't do the job. Finally, a double peyote strip connected to a triangular shape seemed to fit well and I find the result quiet satisfying.
