I have been getting tired of something that just wouldn't come out the way I want it, so I decided to make something completely different. And this is what became a new bead: I still don't know how to call it, maybe something connected with space, but I am very pleased with the result. All it is is silverleaf on black base wrapped in Double Helix and then thickly encased. Easy-peasy, really. I obviously need to get bored more often!
