Spiral Ropes…

kittencrafts_spiralropebracelets

These two bracelets are part of what I whipped up for my stall. They are simple spiral ropes using 8/0 seeds for the core and 11/0 seeds mixed with 4 mm fire polished and drop beads (left one) and 11/0 seeds and 4 mm crystal bicones (right one).  Both of these are made with trusty Fireline thread and simple magnetic clasps.

The thing I love about these spiral ropes is that they are a great way to use up your not so ‘perfect’ seed beads. So if you happen to have a stash of Czech or Chinese seed beads that aren’t great for bead weaving work, make a few of these to use them up – perfectly sized beads are much less important here. Also, these are super easy and quick to make and look really pretty as both bracelets and necklaces.

If you want to have a try are making your own there are loads of tutorials on YouTube like this one from the incredible Jill Wiseman.
