Cellini Spiral Stitch Necklace


Hi team,

This week is a necklace I made for my mum for her birthday. It’s a Cellini Spiral, and I’m absolutely in love with it. I think one of the things I love most about this necklace is that it looks very complicated, but in fact it’s a very simple stitch performed over and over.

It’s just a circular peyote stitch worked using different sized beads.

There are quite a few tutorials on You Tube for this type of bead work so if you’re interested in learning, you should check some of them out!


One of the best things about this stitch is that you can use pretty much any beads you like. Provided you have some small beads and some larger ones, you’re going to get the cool spiral effect.

The beads I used:

Size 15 black seed beads

Size 11 silver Delica beads

Size 11 red Mill Hill beads

Size 10 black triangle seed beads

Size 8 frosted red seed beads


It takes a long time to stitch – I think this represents about 12 hours of work. I really hope my mum likes it!

Have a great week!
