I LOVE bead crochet! i have been making beaded ropes, and i can't seem to stop lol. I want to tackle wire and beads, and my goal is to do clutches and small wrist bags, fully beaded . . . tho i am having a hard time finding patterns for those, any one have any suggestions? I am talking were you reall can't see the thread/yarn, just covered in beads :) Anywho, thanks! :hook

I love the looks of those beaded rope bracelts--I've crocheted for years but I have no clue how they're done....have to hunt maybe for a free pattern somewhere--hmmm.

You might want to check out my website. The link is in my signature. I started my designing career doing crocheted beaded purses. You do not see the thread on my designs. Crocheting with beads is wonderful and I love the look.

Craftylady, check out youtube, there are wonderful tutorals there! I used bead crochet in the search, and found quite a few. I find it pretty easy, i started with cotton yarn and plastic pony beads, but quickly moved on to thread and seed beads.

 

Kathy I will! I have been looking all over for purse patterns, and haven't had much luck, though I did do a little treasure bag with beads ( I will post a picture soon) and that turned out alright. Thanks for the advice :)

 

And after looking at Kathy's site, she has a fantastic tutoral on the rope beads, that includes graphs for patters!! check hers out too :)

This is something I definitely want to try, but have not done yet. Anyone have suggestions on a good first time tutorial or pattern for bead crochet?

I did crochet few items with beads.

Couple hats for my granddaughters and Beaded Monogram Afghans, two of them. That was a very time consuming job...:(.

I am not sure if I would like to do that again.

I love the hats,USpolishgirl!

 

The beads add a really nice touch to the white. :) I would totally wear it.

Thank you Mose Mouse for a very nice compliment!:).

You just make me laugh by saying that you would wear that.
