" Spiral Out - Keep Going " - Weekly Challenge #26

This week the challenge is to make your string a 'Spiral'!   There are all kinds of significance to the spiral - it occurs everywhere in nature and in sacred geometry.  You can build it with the golden ratio, etc., etc., etc. (The Diva)

What is a 'spiral'?  To summarize the many definitions, a spiral is a curve on a plane or in a space, which runs around a centre in a special way.

Apparently, my ZIA spiral is a 'three-dimensional conical helix' form/shape/type.  Whoever knew! 

"Spiral Out"- ZIA - 6"x6" Bristol board; double-pencil string; Sakura Micron Black 01, 005 & Brown 01; graphite shading

Happy tangling!
p.s.  Happy Birthday, Susan.  Love you.


  1. OMGosh! I SO LOVE this! It's different than all of the others I've seen! I Love the airy-ness! Beautiful work!

  2. Wow! This is really fantastic. I love it.

  3. What a great idea using a 2 pencil string! It looks so light and playful!

  4. Totally different spiral! Love the background too, fits the tangle :)

  5. Lovely tangle, the double pencil string is perfect. Wonderful shading.

  6. If you're not careful, a good gust of wind is going to lift that ribbon off the backing and send it flying! ;)

  7. Love you too, and your ribbon :-)
