Tambour beading

Source:  Crochet Knitt Unlimited blog
Whilst cruising Pinterest the other day I came across this amazing photo of Irish Crochet with seeds beads - isn't it stunning!

A few years ago I took an online Irish lace crochet class  and I feel in love with this delicate crochet style.  It also linked the techniques I had been taught by my Mother back to Ireland where my family originally came from.

When I went to the original blog post on Crochet Kit Unlimited I also found this amazing video about Tambour beading which uses a Tambour Embroidery hook.  I have used my own crochet hooks to do some detailing on beanies (simple chain stitch) but I never thought to use a hook in this way to add beads.
