Modified Russian Spiral Rope Necklace in lovely shades of pinks, purple and peach.
Falling Grapes Rope I
I had these lovely drop beads in my stash for a number of years and never knew what to make with them. As the shape and shades remind me of ripe grapes I had an idea to suspend them from a vine-like rope which I did by using Russian Spiral stitch. I combined size 11/0 Toho Galvanized seed beads in Sweet Blush, 8 mm glass drop beads and 3 mm Fire Polished crystals in shades of pink and peach. The rope is 52 cm long and just under 2 cm wide; and for clasp I used a light gold metal toggle clasp which is hypoallergenic.
