Spiral Star Ornament or Suncatcher at Sova-Enterprises.com A friend added long bugle beads to the center of my spiral ornament and make an ornament cover with long bugle beads and spiraling colors. I took a technique from a picture in a Japanese book and used it to create this free standing ornament or sun catcher. Bugle beads make smart looking fringes from the dream catchers I used to weave. Now I am re-purposing them for beautiful stars and I have them hanging in my windows.

Poinsettia Ornament Drape by Pamela Welborn AKA Violetbead This ornament drape looks like a Poinsettia when you look down on it from the top, so I like to put it on lower branches. You can make it in other colors and just have a lovely ornament drape. Make it all in one color for a lovely drape for any branch!

Bugle spiral rope. clicks thru to pix schema.The important thing here is the beading wire strung thru the core. I've used this many times to allow a heavy focal bead without having to rely on a few passes of thread. This technique can be used with many seed bead projects for heavy wear durability. Allows a clasp without attaching it w/fragile thread.
