Spiral Pendant Necklace

A spiral rope is a fun project to get your feet wet in the world of seed beads and a nice way to show off pendants from your favorite bead artists. This design is from Fusion Beads.

Auntie's Beads provides a video with the basic spiral stitch directions on Youtube.

I think I would use copper seed beads for the pendant bail to match the clasp. Here are a few art beads that would work great with this project:

And if you wanted to use that technique for this month's theme, you could hand another art bead inside of or from the bottom of the donut focal :D
