Learn to make this bead woven rope to wear as a necklace alone, as a base to hang a pendant on or as a bracelet. Make it plain or embellish it as much as you want.

SALE - Normally $6.95.

This tutorial includes step by step photos in full color and textual descriptions of each step. Very little experience is required. However, I consider this to be an intermediate level tutorial. Some bead weaving experience would be useful in mastering this beadworking technique.

The tutorial includes how to weave the rope and the toggle clasp mechanism.

The stitch used is single needle right angle weave. An introduction to this stitch is available in my Swarovski Crystal Bracelet Tutorial which is sent as a FREE download when you purchase this tutorial.

This tutorial covers each individual step bead by bead is full color photos and textual explanations.

Tutorial is 49 pages long with over 140 full color step by step photos.

MATERIALS NEEDED FOR THE WOVEN ROPE

♦ In the example in the main photo I used 37 – 3mm bicone crystals per inch.

ALTERNATE BEADS
♦ You can use just about any bead to make a rope including…
•Seed Beads
•3 or 4mm Druks (aka Round Czech Glass)
•3 or 4mm Fire Polish (aka Faceted Czech Glass)
•4mm bicone crystals
•Any bicone shaped bead
♦ I have used bicone beads up to 8mm with nice results.

TOOLS
♦ Size 10 or 12 beading needles.
♦ Fine scissors or other thread cutting tool.
♦ A bead mat or anything to keep your beads from rolling away while you work.

HOW MANY BEADS ARE NEEDED
♦ The possibilities are quite endless in terms of the bead size and shape. You will need to experiment to determine how many beads you need for your rope. I usually weave a 1” rope if I need to determine how many beads are needed before I order.

LEARNING TO WEAVE THE ROPE
♦ I recommend not starting with seed beads to learn the stitch. Use something that is at least 3mm in size. You may want to try larger 6mm beads to weave a short rope until you get the hang of it.
