The playful spiral

Difficulty: 2
Technique: Stringing

Seed bead stringing

Preciosa Ornela has prepared a playful spiral using PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ in red, blue and white. In order to expand the color range of the popular two-hole PRECIOSA Twin bead, Preciosa Ornela has created a variant involving two-hole pressed beads of the same shape and size which has enabled us to offer popular opaque colors which could not previously be made during seed bead production. The spiral made with seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand consists of both variants of PRECIOSA Twin. We have combined them here with two-hole beads and seed beads without any problems. We wish you many happy hours of beadworking with seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ range!

Materials & Tools

Materials & Tools

A 0.20 mm nylon line, flexible stringing material (Opelon, Elastomer, Lycra), a long thin needle, scissors, flat nose pliers (for flattening the beginning of the nylon line for easier stringing through the eye of the needle) 


The spiral of PRECIOSA Twin seed beads and PRECIOSA Rocailles is created very easily using the following procedure. The spiral can be used as a pendant, earrings, a decoration or as a necklace. In order to ascertain how many seed beads need to be strung for the required length of the spiral, first create a sample, measure it and then modify the number of seed beads to the length of your own design. It is also possible to create small sections of the spiral which are then joined together. This second method is simpler in practical use. It is easier to tighten.

Step 1

Alternately string 1x T and 1x R10 onto the line and then pass it through the second hole of the outer T. Pass it through the second hole of the T without adding an R and tie both ends of the line. The spiral is created after the line is tightened. The individual spirals can be connected one after the other. The last T from the created section is the first T of the previous one. Twist the spirals in all three colors in the same direction. Gradually twist them together according to how they are growing. After connecting and twisting all of the spirals, string the R6 onto a flexible stringing material in the arisen internal hollow and tie a double knot. This will strengthen the entire bracelet.
