Spiral Beaded Rope Necklace Tutorials

 

This summer I challenged myself to create several beaded rope designs that use exclusively traditional beads. It was a creative play with seed beads, no particular stitch, except for one rope for which I used a modified version of tubular herringbone. Bellow are the three spiral ropes toghether that were made.

The first beadwoven rope is "Tubular Herringbone with a Layered Twist". This beaded rope is a variation of the tubular herringbone with a twist stitch. In this new beading design, the seed beads arrange nicely in a layered twist as you advance with the beading, forming a dimensional texture for the beaded spiral rope. This new beading stitch can be used for various beading designs, such as necklaces or bracelets. The tutorial is available HERE.

The second design is the "Spiral Leaf Rope" beadwoven necklace. This beading design uses only traditional seed beads of various sizes which are woven to form a spiral leaf pattern around a beaded core. The result is a beautiful beaded spiral rope with a dimensional texture. The beading pattern "Spiral Leaf Rope" can be used to create various beading designs, such as necklaces or bracelets. Beading tutorial available HERE.

And the third spiral necklace design - "Chunky Helix Rope" - a beadwoven textured spiral necklace. The design uses traditional 11/0 seed beads and 4mm fire polished beads. The project is for intermediate beaders, however advanced beginners may find the project quite up to their skills. The beading pattern can be used to create a matching chunky bracelet as well. The Beading Tutorial can be purchased HERE.
