An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

How about a tatted version of yesterday's crochet spiral? It needs some practice and refinement, of course, but I think it has potential. Beads around the outside for earrings? A bead in the centre?
Here are some earlier versions:
I started off using lock joins, simply so that I could work with two shuttles instead of four. I thought I'd get it basically right like that and then use Catherine Wheel Joins to get a smoother effect. I also had the absurd idea of using direct stitches in one colour and normal in the other so that I could work with one shuttle. Absurd because direct stitches move anti-clockwise and normal ones clockwise. Duh. What do you think? I'm sure someone must've tried this before, so if anyone would like to point me in the right direction, please do.
