Jackie Mosher demonstrates bead crocheting
Jackie Mosher’s necklaces start as more than a thousand tiny beads, carefully strung in a precise sequence on nylon thread. The color and style of the beads that she selects will determine the pattern.
To start the rope, Jackie crochets a small number of beads and connects them to form a circle of 4, 5, 6 or more beads. This number affects how the pattern appears during the crochet process.
After the initial circle, the process is similar to regular crochet, except that a bead is incorporated into every stitch.
A necklace or bracelet of Jackie’s is a treasure, a triumph of patience and artistic vision.
