Free Spiral Rope Seed Bead Patterns (5/7/2014)

I had tried this technique before, without much luck.  Since I am still on Christmas holidays, I decided to try again.  I have to say that this time, things worked out much better than I had expected.  I like beadaholique videos because I find that they are the easiest to follow and understand.  So after watching the video about 6 times, while stopping and starting as I went, I think I got the main idea.
