I am so excited that my design for the Turkish Loops bead crochet bracelet has been published in the December, 2009 issue of Bead & Button. It was an intersting experience working with the Julia Gerlach, the editor for the article. Left is the first page of my article and Right is the cover with the beautiful design by Melissa Grakowsky.
I submitted two bracelets with more color but Julia took the design in different directions, one a more Twilight/goth look and the other more casual. It is alway interesting to see what individual spin other beaders put on your design.

Here were my original designs:


  1. Adele, I LOVE your bracelet design in the latest B&B. I had a question about replication. I am a serious hobbyist who participates in occasional craft shows. Is it ok to make your bracelet for these craft shows? If yes, how should I credit your design? thx!

  2. Sorry for the delay--we lost our interet access last week and I have been trying to catch up now that I am online again. Why don't you email me at and we can discuss it.
