Denim Spirals

About this design:

Just had to find someplace to try Angela’s instructions for the Leaf Spirals ! Had started this necklace and decided to try the toggle as a side focal. Added the tagua nut to balance the design, and made two more Leaf Spirals for the earrings. (Would have used 20 Gauge wire for the toggle if I had any - - -). Finished length of the necklace is 23 ".


From Lima Beads: African Paper (denim, w/white) Rice 20x10-11mm. Czech Glass Montana Blue Round 3mm, Tagua Nut Cream Tube 20-30x5-8mm. From Other Sources: River Shell Heishi 8mm, Czech Glass Opaque Ivory Bicones 6mm, Gold-plated spiral rounds, Brass Wire 20 Gauge.

    Tried some spirals out of Artistic Twisted wire, too – - had some scraps, including a big spiral with some extra wire attached. Made “double” spirals both round and leaf-shaped. Think I might use them as charms one of these days – - -

    You did an awesome job on the clasp! But your necklace design is the true winner, I love it! The clasp you made just enhances your already beautiful piece. Your twisted wife ones are really cool too!
