Beaded jewelry – Beaded spiral curl

Hi again!!

I’ve decided to devote this post how to  make beaded spiral. So many beautiful beaded jewelry can be made from beaded spiral!!


These wonderful necklace you can get, if you follow these simple beaded patterns.


After that you will use only the blue end of the thread. The red end of thread must be temporarily fixed by piece of adhesive tape.


Don’t forget about right alternation of different types and colours of beads.


Continue the beaded spiral up to the necessary length. After that fix the clasp and that’s all!!

Good luck!!

    You’ve got a good site together with lots of good patterns. And this one is great! So great that I want to make it right this minute (3am and all).
    Unfortunately, I just can’t follow the pattern — I know how to do a “plain” spiral, but I’ve never seen a pattern like that. Could you possibly write some of it out and/or explain what is happening in each picture.
    Thank you so much!! I wouldn’t bother you but the picture is so amazing (and I’ve been getting some great bugles lately, too!

    Thank you for so pleasant words. I’m very glad that you like my blog and posts on it. As for exlaining, I’ll try to write in detail but a little bit later.

    Won’t you have a long stretch of string on the backside after awhile?

    pretty! I understand the pattern but could you give some advice of how long the thread should be and what size the beads and bugles are?

    Nem bonyolult, csak térben van ábrázolva, ha ismered a peyote technikát menni fog.

    Katerina, it’s been almost 2 years since you first replied that you would explain the directions more clearly. We soooo look forward to it because the bracelet is verrrrrrrry beautiful. Thank you, Katerina.

    Here are written instructions for this beautiful necklace.
    1. I used 11°s in 3 different colors (which would be A, B C) and 4-5mm bugle beads, which would be D.
    2. Use 6 lb. Fireline braided thread
    3. Cut a comfortable length of thread
    4. String 2A, 1D, 2A, 1D leaving a 6 inch tail to add ½ of the clasp when you’re done.
    5. Go through the first 2 beads strung. You now have a rectangle. This is the “Top” of the piece. You can tell the top as the working thread and tail string are both on “top” of the beading.
    6. String 2B and 1D and go through the 2A that you strung in the previous step (bottom)
    7. String 2B and 1D and go through the 2B that you strung in the last step (Top)
    8. String 2C and 1D and go through the 2B strung in the previous step (bottom)
    9. String 2C and 1D and go through the 2C strung in the previous step (top)
    10. String 2A and 1D and go through the 2C strung in the previous step (Bottom)
    11. String 2A and 1D and go through the 2A strung in the previous step (Top)
    Follow steps 6-11 until you reach the length you want.
    MAKE SURE to keep the working thread in the front of the beadwork and tighten up the beadwork after each stitch
    I hope these instructions help. It will take a 2-3 rounds before you see the spiral. I will check back to see if there are questions. Enjoy! It makes a beautiful necklace.

    Thank you Katrina for sharing with all of us!

    I was successful with this pattern. Great one! the tutorial is actually an inside look and if you follow exactly as she posted, it starts to come out as it should 🙂

    The directions are so well displayed that even though it is an advanced project I feel I can tackle it. Thank you.
