is this a spiral Review by Lou
Rating

I was excited about making this bracelet as I had a stash of the right beads just waiting to be used. In the picture the beads appear to form a spiral. I followed the instructions on setting up the threads with the matching beads adjacent to each other rather than across and proceeded with the weaving. My beads did not spiral but were 2 by 2. I have since looked up other patterns and find that to spiral the 4 matching bead strands should be across from each other not side by side on the loom. Maybe I did something wrong. Has any one else had this problem?
I do like the finishing with wire a nice alternative to glue.
