Scalloped Flat Spiral Necklace

July 3, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Scalloped Flat Spiral Necklace

In this workshop you’ll be learning the technique of stitching a flat spiral. The necklace you’ll be making has a scalloped bottom edge and a variety of bead types that make it look much more complex than it actually is!

Designed by Laura

This necklace took Best of Show in the 2018 Florida State Fair when entered in by one of our local beaders who stitched it up in our first colorway. Congratulations!

Instructor: Laura

Technique: Flat spiral

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 1
If you’ve taken a few beginner classes, are starting to get comfortable with the language of beading and feel ready for the next step, this is the perfect class for you. This project will be just a little more complex than the beginner pieces, but still great for new beaders.
