The forum of http:/// celebrated its 7th anniversary. For that reason an e-book with the title “Die Perlenhäklerin” came out. In this story you can find the instructions how to make Gentilli-Spirals. Of course I had to try it too.

The spiral is created by a special crochet technique. I used Matsunos size 11/0 and crochet yarn strength 50 for my necklace.

I also crocheted. This time I used a geometric design with 20 beads per round.

I used again my favorite seed beads size 15 but this time I used thread size 50.

Floral Memory

I found this necklace in the Bead & Button Magazine form February 2011. The designer is Jacquelyn Scieszka.

Because the blossoms are made with seed beads size 8, the necklace has a certain weight.

I like the clasp, it is an original solution.
