It was a wonderful Friday

Yesterday, started out at work, where Svitlana and I had agreed to bring in all of our beaded goodies so we could stare at them. It looked like this:
This is what you saw when you walked into our office

After work, I made a quick stop by Whole Foods for some seafood to grill and some summer roll wrappers and headed over to Anne's house to start chopping my vegetables. It was a little gathering to celebrate Amber's birthday. We had the birthday girl, Amber, Svetlana and her little cute little boy, Nina, Patricia and her husband Chris, and of course, Amber's parents, Anne, Tim, and her brother Kevin for a little bit. It was a great day and we were able to grill and eat outside. Time flew and by the time the presents were opened and we were sitting around chatting, it was late and I was ready to fall asleep on the couch!

I love that blue spiral. Did you make it or your friend. Which beads were used? On the close-up it looks like there were not only round rocailles in various sizes but also cubes.(?) I would be grateful if you would tell me the "secret". ;)
