I had a lot of 7mm Chinese bugle beads with
extremely sharp edges( several times my wish was to throw all those
bugle beads away!).Finally I decided to string them on a thick cotton
thread and crochet turkish ropes( the result was good enough).

Very nice ropes. It is always a good thing when we come to a conclution on what to do with something that has been a bother. I really like the black and white one. Crocheting beads is on my list of things to learn.
I look foward to seeing your next creation, thank you for sharing.
I love the pattern on these.
I can't thread crochet so I haven't looked into the bead crochet. But these have me thinking.

I really like them and I would ad...they are more than just good enough !!!
I find these gorgeous. Can I ask how you string the beads, in what order?
A very good way to use these very sharp beads, I have bucket loads of them,and they always snap my thread.
Thank you ,ladies, for replies!
You have to string 2,5 m of beads to get 40 cm crocheted rope.

Thank you for the video tutorial. Maybe with this tutorial I will be able to get the hang of the beads and crochet together. I love the rope, but I am terrible at crocheting with beads.
Thank you for sharing the video. Fascinating technique!
