Beaded Ribbon Curl Tutorial

By on Saturday, April 06, 2013 7 Comments

I love designs which are fluid and sculptural. If you feel the same way,  then you will like this inspiring tutorial spotted on Fire Mountain Gems.   The designer, Catharina Thomas, created a wonderful beaded ribbon curl of a necklace using brick stitch which she called "DNA Ribbon".



The brick stitch with a twist ensures the beaded strand curls. The way one end cradles the pearl is delightful!

It's not strictly like DNA because DNA is actually a double helix (see first link below).  However, who cares when the design is as lovely as this one! Experiment with different beads, colors, etc!

  5. I will definitely check out FMG's tutorial on this. I love the simplicity and fluidity of the piece and especially love the loop and button type closure - makes it look like a small lariat necklace.
