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).

Hi Larissa

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.Huh?

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!

 To crochet Turkish beaded ropes is a real pleasure, but to string the beads for them is a tedious task!

You have to string  2,5 m of beads to get 40 cm crocheted rope.

Larissa,

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.

Happy Beading!

Happy Beading!!
