Bead Crochet Snakes: History and Technique is a gold mine for beaders, scholars, and antique collectors.  It is the only book to offer an extended, illustrated history of bead crochet snakes as well as five patterns for beaders who want to make their own snakes.
 
Bead Crochet Snakes 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.  The book also explains how the snakes were constructed, the fascinating story of snakes made by Turkish prisoners of war during World War I, and the subsequent craze for bead crochet snake jewelry.
 
Beaders can gain inspiration from the many photos of bead crochet items as well as make their own snakes to exhibit or wear .  Patterns are provided for a snake necklace, a rattlesnake necklace,two matching bracelets, and a memory wire snake bracelet.  The projects will also teach beaders an alternate stringing method, the bead single crochet stitch, increasing and decreasing, crocheting on two sides of a foundation chain, and two methods of fastening on a new thread.
