Crochet Beaded Rope Patterns


1st November 2013 (Friday) @ 9.09pm

Hi ..... My apologies for not updating this blog often.   My creative juice has not been flowing smoothly so I kept away from doing wire jewelry.  Instead, I tried my hands with trying out the patterns for crochet beaded rope.   Patterns are aplenty and you can go crazy selecting them.   Here are a few photos to share with you of what I did.


Custom order - Mobile hangings with pewter charms, done for a teacher as a gift for her students.



These are a few of the patterns I tried out using whatever seed beads that I have in my stash.  I will usually use the normal glass seed beads to practice on the pattern just to see how they look after completion and will only use the high quality ones, once I decide on the pattern for my jewelry.  

The seed beads are first strung into the cotton thread a few at a time with needle attached to the thread.  A bead spinner is not used here as it involves the beads to be strung in a particular order according to it's colour and quantity.  If you are using one colour seed beads, then the bead spinner is useful.  Anyway, I don't own a bead spinner!   =)

As you can see from this photo, I did not use shop bought metal findings for the end caps but instead covered it with beaded end caps that I made myself.  Often when crafting, it is hard to find just the right way to finish a piece to suitably compliment the effort I have taken.  I can use these end caps to finish a necklace or bracelet  or some other things that need the use of end caps.

Alright!  It's about all I can share for the time being.  
Until then, take care and have a pleasant and wonderful weekend.

Beautiful! I'm new to crochet beading, I made my first bracelet August 29, 2015. I had to improvise because I ran out of beads on the cotton thread and I didn't have an end cap. How can I make the end bead cap? The stitch looks like peyote, but I'm not sure how to make the top portion. Any help is appreciated. you can reach me at sondorasmiles@gmail.com or just.me.chele on instagram

Hello to Lucania Polis and SonDoras Miles.

I would like to apologise for this very late response to your comments. You can refer to a YouTube video "Beaded End Cap from Beads East (Ann Benson) to learn the beaded end caps. I learned from there too.
