This twirly-whirly spiral slider chain enhancer with its delicate lacy bells at each end containing a sparkling rivoli is both fun to stitch and delightful to wear. Multiple sizes of beads and tight thread tension is all it takes to make the beadwork spiral so that it hugs the necklace.
Students will Learn:
How to use multiple sizes of beads in each herringbone stitch and tight thread tension to get the beadwork to deform and spiral; how to use multiple stitches to create a bezel for a rivoli held in an airy cone-shape.
Experience with right-angle weave, tubular herringbone stitch, netting.
