There are many types of spiral stitches. So time to cover the Dutch spiral! It is a peyote tube modification in that there are sections of beads (called swag or bridge beads) which are not stitched. First up is this excellent introductory tutorial by Gail Nettles of Beaded Jewelry Diva .
Her wonderful bracelet and necklace Dutch spiral designs in this tutorial really show off those swag or bridge beads!
