Has anyone used a "jig" for bead ropes?

Recommended Posts

It seems like a really good idea, if it will work. It looks like I could make my own version (jump rings and ? for the base), except I have no clue how to use it. Any tips?

Thanks!!

I've seen jigs (tools) for making jewelry findings and such, but not sure how it applies to crochet portion of crocheted bead ropes. :think But I only tried crocheting a bead rope once, a long time ago, and am probably missing something.

 

There's a sub-forum under Special Crochet & Fiber Techniques for bead crochet, maybe you'd have a more bead-focused audience that could better answer your question.

Interesting! Reminds me of a knitting nancy. Sorta.

 

You'd just need 5 eye-screws and a piece of wood. Maybe for the base, saw off a length of thick wood dowel? Might be the easiest thing if you don't have woodworking tools, you'd just need a small saw.

I could of course be wrong, I so often am.

 

Still having spent a number of hours in the past week carefully studying at least 6 different books to decide which would be a good reference for the Bead Crochet Technique,

 

Maybe it would be useful for someone who did not crochet first -

 

But this jig seems to me to be a lot of work for little return.

 

Perhaps there will be some moderator magic to move this to the Bead Crochet section and some folks there will have tried the idea and have some input.
