Ok, they're not really artichoke beads, but I don't know what else to call them. They're the beads with overlapping petals that look like artichoke petals. I think some people call them chrysanthemums, but they remind of artichokes. Does anyone know how they're done?

I will have to write up the instructions later. I am on my way out the door to my daughters basketball practice.

Several other people want the directions too so I will make a new thread so they can find it.

There was a link to instructions for scales in the ISGB archives (I still can't find the secret to searching the archives, or I'd post it for you!) - and that link was posted in a thread here.

I'll scout around and see if I can find it for you before Robbin gets home LOL

Hi Alex, Kim miles makes the chrysanthemum beads I think you are talking about. They are absolutely GORGEOUS. Same kind of principle behind it as Robbin posted, but there are layers of casing inbetween. I read somewhere on Kim's site that there are up to 30 layers of glass in those beads. Go to her site and take a look, there was one posted on there for sale. Click on the link below, it'll take you there.

Robbin,

THANKS BUNCHES!

That sounds deceptively simple! Should the dots get bigger and the layers progress down the bead?

I would think that would be a preference kinda thing. I tried to make mine uniform.
