Last month I attended Bead Week at North Ranch Escapees park in Congress Arizona, an annual event that follows Woodcarving Week. It was five days of beading classes. One of which was bead crochet. I was excited! Maybe with one on one tutoring I would learn.
It was frustrating. It was confusing, but I did walk away with an understanding of how it works. At the end of the class, I went back to the RV and practiced with beads smaller than the 6s we had in class. I used 8s. Finally success! I have since made three crocheted bracelets and am currently working on the fourth.
Few more bracelets I made recently:
I can't remember the name of the first one.
