Bead Crochet Snakes: History and Technique

This is a book for collectors of souvenirs from World War I, people who own beaded snakes, and bead crocheters who want to make their own snake jewelry

     This richly-illustrated publication provides an in-depth look at antique bead crochet snakes including those made by Turkish prisoners of war in World War I, those made after the war by civilians in Greece and Macedonia, those made specifically to be worn as necklaces, and how all of these creations fit into the rich tradition of crafts and good-luck symbols in the Ottoman Empire.
     For bead crocheters, there are 5 illustrated patterns for snake necklaces and bracelets.
