As you know, I love bead crochet.
Over the last several months I have designed a series of bead crochet ropes that I
call The Sedona Collection. All the prototypes are finished and all of my testers
have returned their projects and their comments. Now I am developing Instruction
Booklets, illustrations and color combinations for each design. I am also working
with several glass bead artists that are designing beads especially for The Sedona
Collection. Kits will be available here in the Kits Section in the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, take a sneak peek at
The Sedona Collection in the Gallery Section. My goal was to create a versatile,
appealing set of crochet ropes in several styles that are quick, easy and enjoyable to
make. I also wanted to get the bead makers involved in the new crochet
revolution. I have several glass makers working with me. I hope to add bead
makers that work with wood, metal, gemstones, ceramics and polymer clay whose beautiful
handmade beads can become the centerpiece of your Sedona bead crochet rope. Take a look and
let me know what you think. (Update from Lydia - October 17, 2000. Three of
the kits in the Sedona Collection are now available; the Sedona Lace will be available
this coming Spring. See the kits at www.beadcrochet.com
