Based on an old Bead & Button issue... I'd be more than happy to share how I made it.


Well, since some people seem to like it, I can give a verbal description for now (I'll also assume that people have a little knowledge of basic beading....but if not Bead and Button & Bead Style have great insturctions of the basics in the back of every issue)

I used:
flat rectangular beads (they were nice because they were 2-tone blue and green). Flat works best for this project because it sits nicely.
A vial of silver lined chinese seed beads
head pins
a whole lot of jump rings

First
Make a chain using your jump rings (I find it's cheaper than buying the chain). You want to use ones that are about a 1/4" in diameter, maybe a little smaller.

Second
Take a head pin and put on 1 seed bead. Add your flat rectangular bead. Add another seed.

Third:
Use your round nose pliers to start the spiral.

Fourth
Before you keep going with the spiral, put the head pin through one of the rings on the jump ring chain. Then use your flat-head pliers to finish the spiral. Once you've made as much of a spiral as you can, fold it over the jump ring flat against your rectangular bead. This will hold it on to the chain.

Fifth:
Keep doing the above steps. 2 sets of sprials/beads should go on to every other jump ring in the chain. Be sure to avoid attaching them on the same side of the chain.

Hopefully the directions make sense (I think they will if you keep looking back at the picture...)

When I have some time over the weekend, I will do a picture tutorial for those who don't bead much (it's a beginner level project - I think).
