Spiral weave is a versatile stitch used for creating long bands of beading, often as the foundation for an embellished necklace or rope. The weave itself is quite simple to do, and you can add interest and glamour by using multiple sizes, colors, and textures in the beads of the spiral. And then you can embellish either the core beads or the outer beads, with limitless possibilities.
All of the designs shown below feature spiral weave; directions include step-by-step techniques for the specific spiral created in the design. Some are available as instant download patterns, some as kits, some as both. Links are given below each photo.
