Caged Beads

My Caged Beads series developed after lots of experimenting with spiral rope back in 2003.

This 5-page beginner tutorial contains full instructions and tips for making the necklace shown as well as information on all the other examples in the series. It also contains check lists for all tools, materials and techniques needed to help you shop and plan.

A basic knowledge of spiral rope may help you but is not essential.

I love to support and encourage individuals who make beadwork so please feel free to use anything you make from these instructions as gifts or to sell to support your bead buying habit!

This project was originally published in issue 3 of Bead magazine.

Sadly due to EU VAT regulations I cannot sell this as an instant download but the file will be sent to you asap. If you would like it instantly you can purchase it here on Etsy or here on Bead-Patterns or a paper copy here but if you are within the EU you may be charged VAT.
