I've always told people who purchase my patterns and books that the designs are there for you to personalize. My bead and color choices are generally not to everyone's taste. Take the pattern, pick your own beads and run with it. Make it your own.
New Hampshire Bead Society member, Sandy Sherman did just that. This is her version of the Inca Lava Rope found on page 16 of Triangular Bead Crochet Ropes. Isn't it a stunning rendition?
This is my version of the pattern so that you can see how one stringing table can produce pieces that come out looking so different. They each fit the personalities of the individual bead crocheter.
You can find both e-copies and print copies of the book on my website, Bead Line Studios. If, by chance, you want a personalized copy of this book to try your own variations of some different designs - by all means, email me. I have a few printed copies on hand that I'll make a limited time, web special price of $20, postage paid (USA only), signed. You deserve to have a crocheted piece that reflects your own personality. With today's bead choices, there is no limit to what you can do.
