Turkish bead crochet is not yet widespread in this country. It consists in a simple crochet technique resembling bead crochet, but the effects and possibilities are quite different. The design itself is made by combining at least two different kinds of beads. Once you learn the principles of this method, it is very hard to stop making necklaces and bracelets, purse handles and much more.
