What a magnificent stitch this is! I’ve seen many Cellini spirals and they are most beautiful in whatever colour combination I come across. I had to make one. Probably won’t do it again because the work is tedious.
The Cellini Spiral was originated by seed bead masters Virginia Blakelock and Carol Perenoud who developed it and named it after Benvenuto Cellini, a 16th-century Italian sculptor known for his Rococo architectural colums.
