It's fun to try the Russian spiral stitch in different color ways to see what kind of looks you can come up with. Cheri tried the stitch in both blue and orange colors to show how different the stitch looks when you switch up the colors. You can also switch up your bead shapes to create even more variation within the stitch. Learn how to do the Russian spiral stitch and see more design inspiration in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
