Russian Spiral…

kittencrafts_BWrussianspiralneacklace

One of my art class friends gave me a box full of beads and sequins a little while back and these great pearl and black seeds were in there… What better way to use them than to make one of my favorite beaded ropes!

This Russian Spiral ( tutorial by beading4perfectionists hereย ) is made with 6/0, 8/0 and 11/0 seeds – and that’s only because I didn’t have enough 6/0 black beads to finish the whole necklace so I figured I could make the middle part fatter and the end parts a little skinnier – thankfully there were enough pearl colored 8/0’s to make the whole thing or this would have ended up as a bracelet!

I also used black 11/0’s to make little end caps and sewed them onto the end of my rope to neaten it up a bit. The closure is just a rondelle bead and peyote loop.

Now to figure out what to make with the rest of the beads and sequins ๐Ÿ˜‰
