Tutorial on how to make this 'Moonstar' necklace using the spiral stich.
Cut a 3 metre length of Nymo, thread on to a size 10 needle. Tie on a size 6 bead (6TR2100) as a tension bead, then string on 3 core beads (6TR2100) and 3 outside beads(1x 6TR2100 1x 8TR88 1x 6TR2100). Slide the beads down the thread so that you leave a tail of about 8 to 10 inches. The tail thread will be used later to sew on the clasp.
Pass the needle up through the first 3 core beads just strung and pull tight.
String 1 core bead (1x 6TR2100) and 3 outside beads (1x 6TR2100 1x 8TR88 1x 6TR2100). Pass up through the previous 2 core beads added. Pull tight.
Pass through the core bead last strung and pull tight, flipping the loop of outside beads to the right.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 to your desired length.
Adding your Chips
Tie on a 2 metre thread, weave it throught the spiral to your chosen point. Then thread on a stone chip and a seed bead and go back through the chip only and push the needle throught to the next chip placement point.
Adding your Clasp
With the tail threads you left on each end, stitch on your clasp.
