Bead crochet is something amazing and looks fantastic. And the great thing is you don't have to know how to crochet in order to learn how to do this. I am actually going to take a class on this on Monday on how to do this but found these animated lessons online today and thought I would share them with those of you who are interested in learning this art. I am going to share the link to the lessons page as there are too many links on the page to all the lessons. But I will give you an picture of what bead crochet looks like.
To learn how to do this go to this website: http://beadcrochet.com/lessons/lessonindex.htm. Here you will find lessons for right handed and left handed individuals. Also they are set out in different speeds, they slow the lessons down for you.
I am a part time beader who would love to do it full time but don't have the time to devote to it. I thought it would be nice to devote a page to other beaders, like myself, who don't have the time to scan the internet looking for patterns for seed beads or who don't want to spend money on books, a place to go to find new ideas for different things to create. I hope to create a place where you can find patterns for bracelets, necklaces, bags, etc. There may be a few patterns thrown in for non-seed bead pieces as well just to spice it up a bit. My personal favorite weave is the peyote is I find is so diverse. I have been beading for rather a short amount of time compared to others since it has only been, regularly for about 2 years, but I have picked it up quickly and have gotten great compliments on my work. It is soothing and like therapy for me. I just want to share a little of my happiness with others. Please enjoy this site!
