A side-effect of packing and unpacking my craft supplies for semester break migrations is re-discovering projects I'd set aside in my Unfinished Project Bin. Today I took one out and finished it.
This stitch is called spiral rope, and it's one of my favorite techniques. It works up quickly and produces a supple rope that looks nice alone or is great as a base for a pendant.
This necklace uses metallic bronze seed beads for the core and gilt-lined white opal seed beads for the outer layer. Both are size 11. The clasp is a peyote stitch toggle.
