Honestly, I dont know what any sort of beadwork is called. I usually just see something my mom made and want to make something like it (or find an unfinished piece I want to finish), so i either ask her how to do it, or if it's unfinished, take it apart to figure out how myself. (thats pretty much what I did for this piece, loosened some of the threads so I could see how it worked.) I'll see if I can get some pictures of the technique. The problem is, its hard to take pictures of such small detail. Maybe I'll use some big pony beads or something. That would probably work better.

Nice job, btw. 

Well I really am curious as to how it's done Smiley is it something like a circular peyote or something?

It looks like a spiral stitch to me.  You can look online for all sorts of tutorials.  It really is one of the easier stitches to do and is very versatile.

For your first project, I'd stick with size 8 seed beads (the smaller the number the larger the bead).  If you have a bead shop that carries seed beads, they can help you out.

The about.com site I saw is for the dutch spiral, which is a little different than a regular (spiral).  Heres a good site for instructions:

I'm not very good at understanding directions like that, I'm better at just figuring it out from an existing piece, but neither the Dutch Spiral, or the Regular Spiral seem to be the way I made this necklace. I just looked at tubular peyote stitch, and that seems like it. I still might make up some simple instructions, since all the ones I found were kind of confusing. At least to me.

oh, and for this, you definitely would only use one size of bead. this site made sense to me. http://www.angelfire.com/co2/beltana/peyote.html
you would just use less beads than it says. the beginning and the step down are kind of confusing, but i'm sure you all can figure it out.
