Aha and did you know that there is something like bead crochet too? So let me introduce you to CreativeOP. It's an Etsy shop that sells crochet bead necklaces and bracelets and knit clothing.
If you are wondering what bead crochet is....here is some background information 😃
It's a crochet technique in wich you incorporate beads into fabric. There are published descriptios of bead crochet that date from around 1824, but it may very well have been common before that date. At the time it was considered to be more for the rich people. During the days of the great depression time for needlework got less and more inexpensive manufactured jewelry became available. In recent years the interest has revived as a hobbyist pastime.
The shop owner has been doing crochet for over 30 years. But when she saw a bead crochet bracelet on the internet about 3 years ago, she got inspired, and since then she has also been making these bead crochet necklaces and bracelets.
For her jewelry she uses cotton thread and Japanese beads and metal accessories. In time she also wants to start making decorations and gradually turn her hobby into a business.
