That is one gorgeous bead Sal, really lovely colours. Smiley

In theory this is a simple technique but you can get it wrong, Sal's explanation is very clear though.

Everyone is gifted, its just that some leave the wrapping on longer than others

Do you mean this?

If so, it's actually quite easy.

1) Start with a skinny barrel in the "tornado" colour
2) Put rings of clear around the barrel - make sure they don't touch - alternatively trail a spiral of clear around the barrel like a screw thread or helter skelter.
3) Gently melt the clear into the barrel. Don't marver,
4) Encase the whole bead.
5) I squashed this bead to exaggerate the spiral effect but you can leave it round.

Thanks for posting this Sal, I was directed to your instructions by Karen   'Essex Girl'

            All very helpful. 
                                       Thanks folks.

I've been trying to figure out this technique for ages, thought it might have been some sort of 'gravity swirl' type method...!  Undecided

Thanks! I will definitely be giving it a go when I next get to the torch...
