Convertible Pearl Spiral Stitched Beaded Necklace Tutorial

(2 customer reviews)


This tutorial has both written instructions and clear detailed photographs with arrows showing the thread path superimposed on the pictures. The pattern is simple enough for a beginner to follow and the bracelet can be made rather quickly for a beadweaving project. There are 4 pages in this tutorial.


This is a tutorial for a spiral necklace done in three graduated sections with fresh water pearl accents. The necklace clasp attaches beautifully to a matching bracelet allowing the bracelet to be worn as an extender to lengthen the necklace or as a stand alone bracelet. Become an expert on spiral stitch as you will learn how to do spiral stitch in three different ways as you make this necklace! If you’ve never used the core first method, you will definitely learn something new.
The tutorial includes detailed step by step instructions with clear colored diagrams for each step. The designer is available by email for any questions that may arise.
