Nautilus shells in my Book

Like many, I find the nautilus spiral very appealing. It's that sacred geometry thing happening. I've used the image occasionally in my artwork.

I wanted to include a nautilus in my non-journal/non-sketchbook. This is the first two-page spread I've done in it. I didn't have that intention when I began but the book opened so nicely in the middle of a signature of pages that it was a no-brainer.

Here's the left-hand page:
Tangles: Crescent Moon, Pearlz, Tri-dots
Here's the right-hand page:
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Crescent Moon, Diva Dance, Flux, Marasu, Pearlz, Prestwood,
Printemps, Slowpoke, Tamisolo, Tipple, Tri-dots
And here's the two-page spread:


  1. Incredible. So relaxing to look at - my eye travelling in and out of those spirals. So pleased your book fell open as it did so this two-pager came to be!

  2. You are incredibly talented to be able to work with both hands and make something so very brilliant. Congrats.

  3. Your pages are stunning! I know I have several amonite necklaces and beads. I love the shape.
