About this design:

Are you looking for a challenge? This is a new technique I just learned; the flat spiral stitch. It's almost like knitting, but more fun (in my opinion) :) I am happy with my first piece and will certainly make more!

Components:

Crystal 4mm & 6mm bicones, 18k gold 11/0 seed beads, 14k gold toggle clasp, fireline

    Thank you very much ladies! Not really difficult to do, it just takes some time and concentration :0) I learned it with a learning video, again on auntiesbeads.com; look for “flat spiral stitch” with the search engine. You can also add a second row to this, which is also explained in a second video, but I was happy with just one. Enjoy and share!

    Fantastic, Awesome, Gorgeous! Is this design from the Karla Kam? That’s where I learned to crochet wire.

    Yes Little Round Chick it’s a Karla Kam design! Not that much work honestly, it was my first and I did it in one evening (a long one though, approx. 5 hrs) but I started over at some point :0)
