Making a Bead Spinner

Making a Bead Spinner

Yesterday I presented a how-to crochet with beads. For the rope you have to string beads on a thread which is a boring exercise. When you simply want to string the beads without any pattern you can use a bead spinner. Kimberly Chapman published a tutorial for making yourself a bead spinner out of reused materials.
What a great idea!
