Retired - Royal Vortex Necklace

PROJECT N8013
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Advanced
This pendant features a regal swirl of Toho seed beads and Czech glass 2 hole SuperDuos woven together in a variation on cellini spiral stitch. The pendant hangs on antiqued gold twisted rope chain, topped with a bead cap and anchored at the base with a 12mm Swarovski crystal pearl.
Instructions
This necklace measures 32 inches. To modify the size, adjust the length of chain used.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Do Cellini Spiral Stitch With Two Hole Beads. Using what you have learned in the video, begin by cutting 4 feet of beading thread, or as much as you feel comfortable working with, and string on your size 12 needle. As you weave, you will need to tie off and add new thread.
  2. String on your first row of beads as follows: Four 15/0 White, Two 11/0 Antique Bronze, Two 11/0 Teal, Two 8/0 Frosted Gold, Two Purple SuperDuos, Two 8/0 Frosted Gold, Two 11/0 Teal, and Two 11/0 Antique Bronze.
  3. Tie a double overhand knot. Take your needle and go through the first two 15/0 White beads. You are now ready to begin your weave as seen in the video.
  4. Follow along with the video to weave your pendant to the desired length.
  5. Sew on your bead cap, add your 12mm Swarovski crystal pearl stopper, and attach your chain as shown in the video. Enjoy your necklace!
