Free Spiral Rope Seed Bead Patterns (3/7/2014)

2014 March 7

I love spiral ropes. So many times we make a pendant and there is not a matching necklace to put it on. 1. While you can use a simple chain, a spiral rope is great for several reasons. 2. You can incorporate the same seed beads into your spiral rope that you used in your pendant. 3. Spiral ropes are fast to work up. 4. If you only use seed beads, it can be very inexpensive. 5. You can incorporate just about any type of bead into a spiral rope. Try one today!!

Did you ever want to play with seed beads but not sure where to start?  Thanks to the awesome and incredible AJE team they talked me into showing you an easy and fun stitch that can be transformed in so many ways.  I will first show you the basics in this post then in my next post I will show how to add focals and embellishment.

I made this necklace from a pattern in the book The Beadworker’s Guild Introduction to Beadwork – Bracelets.  It’s not a very inspiring looking book, a bit old-fashioned, but the information and instructions for all the stitches are really good.  I made this with size 11 seed beads.  I don’t know where they came from and I don’t know what brand they are but they were all different shapes and sizes, which is fine by me.

One of the great things about beading is that, regardless of the weather, becoming absorbed in a new project lifts my spirits and improves my temperament. So if you’re suffering from the winter blues like I am, here’s a free (and sparkly) bracelet project using flat spiral stitch. Enjoy!

Spiral Rope Beaded Necklace Thu, 15 May 2008 20:34:00 GMT

I stitched the necklace with the spiral rope chain pattern, using delica beads for the core and 11/0 seed beads for the outer spiral. I completed it in a 24-inch length and a continuous style. So it can be conveniently popped right over your head without any fumbling with a clasp.I love how the colors turned out, and it will be the perfect complement to a dressy or casual jeans outfit.

Simple Spiral Rope Stitch Tutorial Fri, 11 Oct 2013 18:41:07 GMT

I have decided to write a tutorial on my favourite beadweaving stitch – spiral rope stitch. I love it because it is super simple and very rewarding. Who doesn’t like spirals? Anybody can do this, even those new to beadweaving or jewellery making all together. Now I don’t know about you, but I often have to read tutorials over and over again to understand exactly what I have to do. I have tried to make this as simple as possible with as many pictures as possible but it is my first ever time writing a tutorial so go easy on me! This tutorial is for the stitch itself. The picture above shows some pieces that can be created with the stitch.

Seed Beading and Ammonite Cabochons Wed, 05 Feb 2014 00:10:00 GMT

I wanted to show you all what you can do with my ammonite glass cabochons, so I decided to make myself a necklace! I used one of my large cabochons (1.5 inches!) and made a beaded bezel from a tutorial from Sally Russick on her blog.
