    Q: Bernie asked: "How is the Spirelli technique done?”
    A: Wrap thin gold or silver cording around a scalloped shape to create a pattern you like. The pattern is different depending how many scallops you skip when wrapping the cord around the scalloped shape.
    Check our gallery for Spirelli samples
