Italian beader, Sara Spoltore has a couple of cellini spiral beaded tutorials that are worth a try if you've never done this modified tubular peyote stitch before. The spiral beaded bezel is so very different from typical beaded bezels we see. I recommend you use the same color scheme as the instructor does to ensure that you do follow the steps correctly the first time you do it.
And the cellini spiral earrings to match! This tutorial also shows how you can taper the spiral down including adding a beaded loop for the ear wires. She also demonstrates how to reverse direction halfway through.
Here is the traditional cellini spiral beaded tutorial that is suitable for making a bracelet or necklace:
The stitch was probably named after Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571), a goldsmith, artist, musician, writer and sometime soldier with an unsavory reputation.
