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!
