Golden Pearls and Swirls

by: Lee Metsalo

The beads that inspired this are the Uber Curly Pig Tails.  Isnít there a myth about a golden pig somewhere?  These curly beads got dressed up to go out today.  They add texture to a necklace, and are a lot of fun! 

This is a simple stringing project.  I started out with 30Ē of Softflex, as I didnít really know how long the finished necklace would be with the swirly pig tails.  As shown here, it is almost 24Ē long.  I wonít lie and say the Softflex behaved nicely while going through the Pig Tail beads at first, but I figured out the trick.  The Softflex will go through the bead without issue, but caught up on the edge while exiting the other side.  Use a pin to lift the Softflex over the edge, and everything continues to move smoothly.  Easy peasy!
