Out of Africa

Project and Sample by Emily Miller

Emulating African trade beads, our new Czech seed beads take the spotlight here. In colors taken from African nature and reminiscent of her beloved trade beads, Emily has created a colorful and beautifully textured piece you will just love.
Bead Crochet is Emily's favorite technique! In this project you will mix and match beads while creating a dense rope, it’s a mesmerizing process and you’ll find it tough to put down! Learn the simple technique using old style Czech seed beads, they have so much character as well as a shape that nestles together perfectly for this project. Some basic knowledge of crochet will help you out here, and the amount of beads you use is entirely up to you…how long do you want your piece to be? Every foot of strung seed beads will become about an inch of tubular crochet.
