How to Crochet with Beads

Mexican Motif by Gwen Blakely Kinsler


Make an easy pin with this unique beading pattern. Use Japanese cylinder beads and your favorite pearl cotton to create this bright and beautiful pin with bead crochet.The pattern for this pin was inspired by designs seen in Mexico and throughout the Southwest. Begin by stitching the central motif, then edge it with a row of stitches. Finish by adding a set of active fringe before attaching it to the pin. If you don't have a pin with loops along the bottom, you may attach the beadwork to a pin bar by stitching all along the top row.


Bead Crochet Rope

Lariats: Tie One On by Mary Libby Neiman


If you love to make bead crochet ropes, you'll love this free beading pattern. From a long flapper necklace to a French sautoir, the romantic lariat is a piece of jewelry that exudes charm. The word lariat is derived from Spanish and means to retie or readjust. An active evening wearing a lariat can mean a lot of doing just that. How you tie a lariat can influence its effect. The highlight of special beads and other findings at the end of a lariat can be very flattering when the lariat is worn short and close to the face. The weight of large lariats is borne with greater ease when the lariat is held in a double wrap and tie. Some of the methods shown for tying or knotting are simple and work with a variety of lariats, from slim strands of beads to more dimensional beaded ropes. Some knots work better with certain lengths and styles.
