Beaded jewelry – BIG Beaded Spiral


Today we’ll talk about beaded spirals. I like them very much. They look very smart and unusual, besides the technique is rather simple. From the first sight, of course, it seems rather hard and tangle. But look what I’ve made from one beaded scheme!!


and this one


If you like this one, you can buy it here.


Do you like them? These beaded waves are made because of different size of beads.

Some beaded experts call this spiral – Cellini Spiral. It’s a modified tubular peyote (ndebele spiral or herringbone spiral). Some other call it variant of mosaic spiral.

So this is the scheme of these necklace and bracelet.




After that repeat step 2 as many times as you need.

In this technique you may join different kinds of beads, for instance, cut beads and seed beads. Note: if you use cut beads, take more strong thread for your jewelry (as cut beads usually have sharp ends).

Good luck!!

    I love the herringbone patterns. I just need to know how to finish with a clasp.
