Weaving a Flower of Life pattern on a Hexagon with spool knitted cord by Noreen Crone-Findlay is the subject of today’s video. Here is what Noreen has to say about her video:
“This video tutorial by Noreen Crone-Findlay shows how to weave the ‘Flower of Life’ pattern on the Lily Speed o Weave Loom, but any other hexagonal loom will work just as well. In this video, spool knitted cord is used as the ‘yarn’, but, any kind of yarn, lucet cord, wire, ribbon, fabric strips, t shirt yarn, roving, string or cord, even video cassette tapes, all work as well.”
This detailed, step by step tutorial is a gem. Noreen throughly explains what she does and the common mistakes she has made in the past so you can easily create your Flower of Life pattern mandala.

I know, it’s Mandala Monday and this isn’t about mandalas, but it is so spectacular I had to share it with you. Fine Art Glass Artist Jack Storms explains in this video how he creates his Optical Glass Sculptures. I’m sure you will agree they are extraordinary. And he does include some sacred geometry in his work, so we aren’t too far off base from our usual topics.
Here is another short video giving you a 360 degree look at the ViviOvo D’Oro he spoke about in the first video.
