Beads and fiber are my life and I love to show off the beauty of both in my creations.  I have found that bead knitting offers added versatility that allows me to achieve my goal of combining fiber with beads.

Explore with me the many  possibilities available in bead knitting.

Learn Bead Crochet from Scratch! 
A personal workshop with the beadwrangler

Click here for complete information about the bead crochet package I have been working on for the last several months.  I start you with big, thick thread and no beads!.  Then we work through big thread with big beads, medium thread with medium beads and finally thin thread with little beads - the same beads and thread you would use to make all  those great looking bead crochet ropes, bags, necklaces and lariats.   When you finish this workshop, you will be a pro!

Here's one email I have received regarding my "Learn from Scratch! Workshop".

Dear Lydia-
Fifteen years ago, my husband and I took a trip to Hawaii.  The flight from Chicago to Hawaii was long and somewhat anxiety-producing due to the long flight over the ocean.  When we reached the west coast the captain pointed out the Golden Gate Bridge, then we were asked to close our blinds so that those who had purchased the movie could see it in comfort.  We were served beverages, a meal, watched the movie, and before we knew it we were almost to our designation.  We had soared over the ocean almost without thinking about it.  We successfully arrived at our designation and achieved our goal. Taking your bead crochet course provided me with a similar experience of reaching my goal (beaded crochet ropes) while hardly realizing how quickly and fearlessly I was reaching my destination.  The psychology you used and the skill-building you encouraged in your lessons was fabulous.  I took a beaded rope crochet course at my local bead store and was extremely frustrated.  I then spent 20 plus anxious, stressful hours trying to learn on my own from the instructions provided with the class.  I was unable to get more than 2 "rows" done before producing an indistinguishably shaped mass of beads and thread.  What a mess!  Thanks to you, I just finished a 7" long rope 10 beads around, and it looks great!  Thank you, THANK YOU!  Your course was fun, easy to follow, allowed me small successes along the way, built my confidence, and TAUGHT me to bead crochet.  I am successful and so happy to have found your website and purchased your course.

Floral MontageNew Beading Kit
My newest beading kit, Floral Treasures, is now available.  I introduced this kit at Bead Expo 2001 in Miami and it was a tremendous hit.  It took me awhile to put the webpage together that provides all the information about this new kit.  If you would like to take a look, here is a link straight to the Floral Treasures kit page at 7 Echoes - Floral Treasures.
