A twist on the Natasha bead...

So here's a bead like the one we finished up yesterday:

It's still on the needle, which is important for the next variation of Natasha bead.  While the bead on on the needle, gently grasp both rounded ends and twist in opposite directions.  You may need to rotate the needle and twist from a slightly different direction to get it twisted nicely.  You can twist as tight or loose as you want.  You should wind up with something like this:

Pretty different, huh?  A longer, thinner bead can be twisted more than a shorter, fatter bead, but interesting results will happen either way....
