I had the idea that I would plan my next beaded bead pattern while I worked on keyrings. Mmm, no. It turns out that threading beads is akin to meditation - it fills the mind, with no room for flights of fancy. 


  1. I'm sure you've answered this before, but I'll ask anyway... approximately how many beads does it take per inch? Also, about how long does it take you to string the beads for a keyring?

    1. The rope for a key ring has a 5 bead circumference. At that size, it takes about 50 beads per inch. It takes me about an hour and a half to make a key ring, threading and crocheting. A bit under an hour to thread, I think.

  2. Beads do a number on me - even the few I use. So hats off to you any day!!!

  3. Wow I dont have the patients anymore to thread to many at a time, my hands ache after a short while
