teal russian spiral necklace
This is an experiment in how to contain big focal glass beads. I strung 8 lines of beads to enclose each copper glass bead. I had a stash of cut seed beads which have a lovely glint so I incorporated a variety of other beads - delicas, size 11/0 and 8/0 seed beads to make a Russian spiral. The ends are stitched in twisted herringbone and a string of size 8/0 beads. The toggle is a short piece of enclosed Russian spiral which goes through a simple loop.
Just over 20" long from toggle to loop.
