To add some excitement to these dog days of summer, Bead Crochet Snakes: History and Technique is on sale at Sova Enterprises! From July 17 though August 14, the price will be only $17.25. For more details visit http://www.sova-enterprises.com/catalog/specials.php.
For those not familiar with the book, I have written a history of the bead crochet snakes made by the Turkish soldiers captured by the Allied forces during World War I, bead crochet snakes made by village women in the Balkans after World War I, and snakes made specifically to be worn as necklaces.
There are also patterns for people who want to make their own bead crochet snake jewelry.
