Seed-bead ropes can be used for more than just necklace straps for a pendant. Here, Donna uses sections of Russian spiral as components that complement the antique copper chain, beads, and filigree.

I would like to know how you were able to NOT get a bunchy effect from stringing the rope part?  I made a necklace back in September of 2009 using the peyote stich and when I strung it, it looked somewhat bunched up.

Seed bead ropes make nice purse handles too. i also use them to decorate my christmas tree , make loops and hang a pretty stone in it and looks good on the tree when the lights hit it.   i love beading christmas ornaments,  a good use for busted beads, holeless beads and the bits of coloured glass we find in the bottom of our bead bins is to just run some white glue into a clear glass ball and then dump in the bits and some glitter and wow.   Sits by Herself

The rope part of this project isn't strung.  It is finished with eyepins and bead caps.  That is what keeps it from bunching up.

Really beautiful.  Now I just have to try the spiral rope.  Thanks for sharing.
