The flat spiral stitch creates a captivating style in this bracelet. Cynthia used an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend that matches Swarovski's Iridescent Tahitian Look pearls perfectly. Learn this stitch for yourself and then customize the colors to suit your style. You can even try adding another row of the stitch for a wider bracelet.
