Pink seed bead necklace

I've wanted to try one of these spiral necklaces for some time and found a pattern for a bracelet in one of the beading magazines. I just carried on beading and made it long enough to fit over my head with no clasp so that the spiral was continuous.
When I wanted to start, I found I didn't have the size 6 beads for the outer spiral so had to rush down to Dizzy Di's studio to see what she had on offer.

I'm wondering now whether small sections of spiral can be used as spacers for lampwork beads, probably not without some amendment because the spiral gives the tube slanted ends, if that makes sense.
I must say one of the cats bean bag beds does help when trying to take a reasonable photo.
