Bead crochet -- Learn 5 must-know bead crochet techniques to add to your crochet garments, accessories and jewelry.

Bead crochet is a beautiful way to embellish your crochet shawls, scarves, sweaters and more, and is also perfect for creating one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. The ability to create beautiful crocheted items with bursts of sparkling beads is at your fingertips with this all-new, online video crochet class.

Crochet designer and expert Ellen Gormley teaches five beginner to confident beginner bead crochet techniques in this easy-to-follow class, demonstrating the techniques you'll need to combine your love of crochet with beads. This crochet class will help you:
  • Learn how to choose beads as well as which yarn, thread and hooks to use
  • Identify additional helpful beading tools and gadgets
  • Learn how to practice these techniques with yarn and large beads before working the actual patterns with finer yarns and thread and smaller beads.
The five bead techniques covered in this class include pre-strung bead crochet, hooked-on bead crochet and flatwork bead crochet. You'll love practicing these techniques as you crochet the six exclusive projects designed for this class -- a tube bracelet, wristlet clutch, hexagon Shawlette, beaded keyhole scarf, herringbone pendant and cat portrait.

VERY GOOD! Instructions very clear, I can see what she is doing. Surprised there were so many new things to learn. Projects are nice. She has you do projects to learn how, but encourages you to use them as stepping stones to use your own creativity. Happy to see that I can learn how to use large beads, pony beads, as well as sequins and down to tiny beads. I bought the Tear Drop Shrug pattern and can't wait to put some beading on the fringes and maybe a bit elsewhere in a Native American theme for my Native American daughter-in-law.

This video is very easy to understand. The instructor moves through the projects at the right pace, not too fast and not too slowly. Excellent tips. The demonstration is very clear. Any skill level should be able to make these projects.
