For anyone interested in learning a new jewelry technique, this video tutorial shows how to crochet a bead rope necklace. You can use large pony beads like the video tutorial, or use much smaller beads. The pony beads are suggested for beginners so that you can see what you are doing. To begin, thread all of the beads you will use onto your yarn. You can alternate colors or place them onto the string at random. Both techniques will yield two different effects. Begin with six chains slip stitched into the first chain to make a circle. Place the hook into the first chain pulling the bead down and then pulling through both loops. You will repeat this continuing until you end up with the beads shaped into a circle. You will continue this to create a spiral of the beads to create the bead rope of your necklace.
