A year ago, I discovered that I can incorporate two of my favorite crafts together - crochet and jewelry making! Since then, I've made numerouse pieces of jewelry using this technique and other crochet bead rope techniques.

Turkish bead crochet is a lot easier/faster to do than other crochet bead rope, yet the results are always just as beautiful. I used abalone shell as the focal bead and various sized seed beads for the remainder of the bracelet.

I made this one for a friend's friend. It takes longer to string the beads then it does to actually make the bracelet. This project took me just this afternoon to make!

I've never heard of Turkish bead crochet, but the results are gorgeous.  Love your use of colour in this bracelet.

If you are interested in learning this technique, this is the site that I used to 'self teach'...

Your bracelet is lovely Smiley the beads you chose work so well with the Turkish bead crochet, I've made a few crochet bead rope bracelets but they take so long!! and I think I prefer the look of the Turkish crochet - Thanks for the link I think I'll give it a go Smiley
