The large celtic knot black beads was done with molds I made from a button.  They look the same on the back.  Two molds was needed to sandwhich clay between.   Wink   Good ol gold mica powders.
The smaller beads are from a funky cane.


If interested, I made 3 crocheted bead tutorials here:

Ver-ry nice!  You didn't even mention the cool clay "spacer" beads that you made to go with the crochet covered ones.
Thanks for the tutorial too... will put it at glassattic post haste  Grin .

So re the tutorial, the first hemisphere of crocheting is done without the bead, then the bead is added to finish the crocheting, right?... isn't it hard or at least fiddly to do that crocheting for the second half??  (I can crochet rows, but that's pretty much the extent of my knowledge about crocheting and knitting!)

In the other thread, I see you also used plastic pony beads as well as wood beads ... how come you didn't use polymer clay beads too!??  Jean Hornberger used to cover all kinds of shapes of clay beads with crocheting so I know it can be done --though just how is left to you crocheting gurus.  (On some, she also let the bead's color show through the crocheting and had large elaborate double clay "bead caps" at both ends that you might be interested in checking out:

Thanks nanner, Diane and harryjohnpursey!!

Diane--Awsome pieces in the links you posted!!
Got my printer going now lol.
I have some metal bead caps but did not look right with the crocheted beads I have done so far.   Undecided
I definately need to do other sized clay beads instead for crocheting around, bet I will have better luck then.  Wink
Clay bead caps sounds very interesting!!! hmmmmmm

If you can single crochet, you can do these beads!!
I will try some looser crochet stitches so the clay beads will show more underneath.  I will study those pics and see what I can come up with  Grin  (Ya know I will post em  Wink)

It sounds hard adding the bead to crochet the last 2-3 rows, but it is not as hard as it sounds.  Since I used a teenie tiny size 9 crochet hook, you can grab that back loop in each stitch fairly easy.  If the stitch is too snug to grab, I use my tapestry needle to lift loop a little for easier grabbing.  Wink
