Beaded Ribbon Curl Tutorial

By on Saturday, April 06, 2013 10 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.

    1. Carrie- this isn't my tutorial. I simply shared the find. What you need to do is to click on the highlighted text link. It will take you to the Fire Mountain Gems site. You can then download the free instructions there. Hope this is clear. Have fun.
