Spiral herringbone necklace : the beginning

Everything started with these beautiful charlotte seed beads I’ve had in my stash for a while.
With their single cut, delicate sparkle and pretty mate colors, I spent a lot of time looking at them, but just couldn’t decide what would be the best use for them.
After a bit of mental tossing and turning, I finally decided to make them into a very simple and clean design, where they could have the leading part.
I went for a spiral herringbone rope ! I’ve always liked the look of it so it was the perfect timing to finally try my hands at it.

The start is a bit tricky because of the unbalanced way of producing the stitch. This jump in the stitch (going back deeper than the very last row to create the next) was a bit confusing for the few first rows, but once my hands (and my brain ?!) got used to it, it went like a charm !

I’m pretty happy with the way it’s coming out !

I wonder how I’m going to finish it…mmm.

Edit : I can’t seem to be able to insert the picture properly, I don’t know why…Click on the link to see it ! Thank you ! Problem solved !

    Well – did you leave a pattern. It is beautiful. I am experimenting with spiral herringbone (love doing that stitch) and that color combination is wonderful.
