5 days and a whole lot of frustration later....I can finally post pictures of Superhooker's great package that she sent me!  Grin

The amazing caplet...I couldn't get a decent action photo one-handed, but I will try the next time I have a visitor!

Cuddly scarf (too bad I live in Florida now and probably won't use it much!  But I will be back North soon enough!)

(I could somehow only get a thumbnail to be rotated...who knows!)

Sooooooo soft wristlet!

Cute (and functional!) notepads!

Thanks so much Superhooker!   Everything is amazing and I now have major swap anxiety as I'm sending to you!!

5  Beadwoven DNA bracelet *now with tutorial link!* in Beads: Completed Projects by buckeyebeadgirl on: May 19, 2008 03:27:51 PM
I made this DNA bracelet for the Science IS Art! swap for my partner.  I'm not usually into beadweaving, but I altered an existing spiral pattern from a 3-sided spiral to a 4-sided spiral in order to make it scientifically accurate (yes, I'm a nerd!  Tongue).

Thanks to my partner Flip Flop for the great photo!  My picture didn't turn out nearly as nice!


Here is the link to the tutorial that I used:


I made the following alterations:

Instead of making the spiral 3-sided, I made it 4-sided by adding another bugle and two more size 11's on the original starting set of beads.

In order to make a scientifically accurate (aka, nerdy) spiral, I alternated using the black size 3 bugles with using 2 size 1 and 1/2 bugles in order to simulate the base pairs. Remember to use four different colors of the 1 and 1/2 bugles to represent the four different bases!  I just randomly chose two to use each time it came around.  

If anybody has any questions, feel free to ask me...everything's clear in my head, but it may not have translated well into words!  Grin
