This pattern uses the coraling stitch, common in beading. But what is unique about this pattern is the strand that makes the V-shape that the coral strands are attached to. This strand is basically a modified spiral rope stitch with an extra stabilization row along the top to make it lie flat, and spaces on the bottom that are ideal for “sprouting” coral strands. For this piece, I used black and copper 11/0 seed beads, 15/0 black seed beads for the stabilization row, and different colored drilled chips (blue, green, purple, and orange) for the coraled strands.
