Would just like to ask if anyone knows how to make spiral wrap by sakredchao? Been looking at it all day and I can't figure it out.

Thanks in advance.

1. Make a length of spiral.
2. Make a length of spiral.
3. Take the lengths made in steps 1 and 2 and twist them together.
4. Connect the ends so that the 2 pieces of spiral won't come undone.
5. You're done!

That's it? But what keeps it from coming apart in the middle?

Your mind!

Actually, I think it just hangs loose.


I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas. I just think about it.

I know it's been a while, but I haven't been around the site in a while, so that explains it sort of...

Anyway, I love this weave and it's popular for bracelets, if you haven't figured out how to keep it from getting all messy, here's what I do:

1) make the two spiral chains

2) connect them through the last two rings on each chain, make sure the chains are both tightly spiraled at least at the end you're connecting.

3) find some way of keeping the end you just connected stationary and spiral both chains tightly again (independently of one another)

4) at this point if you have the end fastened down somehow, you've got both your hands free to hold the spiral chains tightly spiraled. begin wrapping them around eachother

5) holding them firmly wrapped around eachother fasten this end as you fastened the other end, through two of the rings at the end of both chains.

This works wonderfully and is how I do it every time. I typically use black anodized and bright aluminum for a nice contrast and people love it. Here's a picture of one of my completed ones, unfortunately for you I didn't include the ends in the pic for some reason: http://www.mailleartisans.org/gallery/pics/23275spiralbracelet.jpg
