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!
