BEAD CROCHET SNAKES: HISTORY AND TECHNIQUE is the only book that offers an extended, illustrated history of bead crochet snakes plus five patterns for beaders who want to make their own snakes.

The book illustrates how these beautiful, shiny serpents fit into the rich tradition of bead crochet as practised in Turkey and other parts of the Ottoman Empire. It also explains how the snakes were constructed, the fascinating story of snakes made by Turkish prisoners of war during World War I, and how to tell those snakes from others made by civilians later.

Beaders can gain inspiration from the many photos of bead crochet items as well as follow instructions to make their own beaded snake to wear. Patterns are provided for 2 snake necklaces , 2 matching bracelets, and a snake bracelet on memory wire. The projects will also teach beaders an alternate stringing method, the bead single crochet stitch, increasing and decreasing beads, crocheting on two sides of a foundation chain, and 2 methods of fastening on a new thread.

Physical Dimensions: 8.5"x11", 112 pages.

As the author, I will be happy to sign this copy of the book.

Great book! So happy I ordered it from Adele-she included some corrections on one of the patterns. It was well packaged, with cardboard so it wouldn't bend thank goodness. Thank you!
