hey there, i have been javing fun recently learning how to make seed bead crochet ropes for bracelets etc, (the weather was far too awful for the shedio). i'm still in the process of attaching clasps etc and will take pics asap but wondered if anyone else on here has tried bead crochet? oh and any pics would be a grand treat indeed Tongue

I enjoy bead crochet - and it's a great project for travelling if you thread your beads before you leave home as then you can't spill beads all over the place!  Grin Grin

I can't crochet - but I used to do loads of bead knitting, a nice tidy way of beading and the cuffs were really popular.

Here's one I crocheted - wire a rose quartz chips.  I knitted a wire and bead one but don't think I have a photo and have done a few with a French Knitting dolly that I thought I had photographed but can't find them.



Resized the image Grin

Have a look at http://www.wikihow.com/Finger-Weave  It's a great way to use up odd balls of wool.

Oh lovely pieces sarah and terri.

I can't fathom it, I'll just stick to viking knit which is the closest to knitting I will ever come.

Hello

I like the photos I've seen here.  I've done some bead crochet.  I need to take some photos of some beads I've made and will attempt to remember to photograph the rope I've crocheted.
