Mel Simmonds, Medieval Needle says, "Once you learn to bead crochet, this book will take you further on your journey. The patterns are inspiring and can be worked alone or in combination. Again, the charts and graphs are easy to read and the instructions are easy to follow. You can even learn to graph your own designs (and it works even if you're not an artist!)."

Bead Crochet ropes have been popular since Victorian times.  With the wealth of bead colors & choices available to us today, they have been growing in popularity once again.

The first book,  "Bead Crochet Ropes" explored many of the textural possibilities in slip-stitch ropes.  This book builds on that information and allows the artist to add graphed designs to their work.  It contains enough patterns to keep anybody busy for a lengthy time.  When you're ready to try your original patterns it shows you how to graph those designs.
