This Superduo flat Cellini spiral bracelet pattern is supported with video tutorials if you need them. So, it is suitable for any level. You can adjust it to fit all wrist sizes. Now, let me tell you a little more about the project.
You will need size 11 seed beads, size 8 seed beads and Superduos to make this bracelet. In theory, it would also work with twin hole beads. But I haven’t tried the design, so if you did want to substitute with the twin holes, proceed with caution!
You can use any brand of seed beads. But do not use delicas for this. Although I would often recommend delica beads (or other cylinder beads) for a Peyote project, in this case you definitely want to use the rounded seed beads.
I chose to use a slide clasp, sized to fit the width of my bracelet (about 21mm). But you can use a different type of clasp if you wish.
You will also need your favourite beading thread. Please use a thread that will allow you to get a good, firm tension. I recommend fireline in either 4lb or 6lb. But if you can achieve good tension with a different thread, that’s fine.
Experience and Techniques
Despite its complex look, flat Cellini spiral is just even count Peyote. You will be mixing in different sizes of seed beads, as you know. So, this can make the technique feel a little awkward at first.
The key is to get your tension right – neither too tight, nor too loose. I have explained that in the pattern and also demonstrated it on the video in the Cellini spiral lesson of this online class.
So, you can try this project at any level.
About the superduo flat Cellini spiral bracelet
I wanted to create an enhanced spiral effect. So, I did this by incorporating superduos into the basic flat Cellini spiral. Now, this creates quite a raised design. So, for practical purposes, I only included the spiral sections on part of the bracelet. That means, when worn, the spiral will just sit around the top of the wrist.
It also means that it’s very easy to alter the length of this bracelet. You are going to have a good section of basic even count Peyote on each end. So, you can extend or reduce the length of that to get your perfect fit.
This style of bracelet is best worn fitted tight to the wrist. It’s a lot of fun to make, and really makes a statement that will wow everyone who sees it.
You can try this in any colour combination. So, see what inspires you!
