Love love love love! I've never worked with beads but I think I must now. Thanks so much for sharing this!

Oh you should definitely give it a whirl. Starting with yarn and those big cheapie plastic beads is always fun (and my daughter loves the result) and then you can migrate into more expensive beads and wire if you find it is something you enjoy. I'd love to see anything you finish to please come back and post a link to any pictures :)

I thought you might like to know the origin of the stitch that you are demonstrating. I learned it from a Turkish shopkeeper while we were touring the ruins in Ehpesus, Turkey. I put up a free tutorial for the stitch on my website http://www.beadcrochetsnakes.com in 2007. Since I didn't know the real name of the stitch, I just called it Turkish Flat Bead Crochet. I later learned that the stitch is actually a Turkish lace (oya) stitch called Yilan Kemigi or Snake's Bone. I am sorry that the author of the article in Inside Crochet chose to copy my work rather than reach back inot her own Turkish heritage but I am always glad when all forms of Turkish crochet gets more exposure.

o.O Very cool! If you would prefer, I can pull the tutorial and either redo it with proper rights OR just not put it back up. Let me know! It is pretty cool though – I have made a lot of bracelets using the technique – it has a really good shape.

Just wanted to make clear that I did not copy Dr. Recklies' work — as she said, she learned it from a Turkish shopkeeper so it is not original to her either. There were many sources available to learn this technique. I'm sorry that my efforts to give Dr. Recklies and her beautiful work mention and exposure in the article were not appreciated.

We all have to consider that stitches cannot be copyrighted – they are too common and we can learn them from anywhere (books, parents, grandparents, shopkeepers, etc) or think we have made it up ourselves even though what we think is original is not.
I wouldn't say that your work was unappreciated – I learned about it on Ravelry (so honestly I didn't know about your article or what Adele wrote about until I put up the video). There is just so much out there, especially with the internet offering it up on a platter.
