I made three of these the last few days - they worked up so fast.  They are spiral stitched with seed beads, and hex cut beads.  The first has a silvery/translucent grey seed bead with grey/black hex beads, the other two were a darker grey seed, or a purply iris seed bead, both with an AB dark finish hex.  I only had one magnetic clasp, so the last two are just waiting until I buy more clasps.  Also, for the purply one, I made a couple of matching earrings, which I will attach to the hooks as soon as I can find them.

Oooo . . . I LIKE those!  Shocked  Very cool - and VERY DIFFERENT!

I'm a newcomer to the whole craft world.  Did you make those by "knitting/stitching" 4 or 5 seed beed strings?

I'd love to buy one of those if they came in "Fall colors" (like forest green, amber, brown, gold, cream - any of those colors).

Very Nice!

Thanks - these weren't knit or crocheted - essentially the beads were picked up on a needle and beading thread and woven back into each other at intervals to make the spiral pattern.

Here is some instructions for how to do it:

Here is a free project that shows what I mean.  It uses a wire core to give it a stiffer shape.  As mine is a necklace, there is no wire core:

Thanks - it did not take very long to do actually - it took me a day and a half to make one of them - and that is a day and a half that included laundry, cooking, vacuuming, shopping, fiddling on the computer, etc too, so each would take maybe 4 hours at the most of dedicated work.

Very pretty! I'm new to beading (it's amazing how one addiction leads to another. Knitting>Spinning>Bead Knitting>Beading) and I'm definitely going to have to make one of those. Thanks for the link!

Nice job!
Thank you for sharing with us and thank you for the links !!!!
I must try this.  I hope I can figure it out because I am new at this.  I just finished my first bracelet following a tut from this site and I'm very proud of it.  I can wait to try more new things.  Obsessed Knitter, you are right "it's amazing how one addiction leads to another."
