As this week’s beading bonus, I selected the Helixa Necklace from Sarah McConnell’s One Big Beautiful Bead. I just love the elegant rope made with a Russian spiral technique–it’s something I’d like to try my hand at.

    I love Russian Spiral, and i love the idea of incorporating it with a single glorious focal bead! thanks for the inspiration.

  • Rhonda Kaya

    It is a beautiful way to frame the focal–the colors of the spiral pick up the colors of the bead…yum!
