I didn't think I would be able to get this done by the deadline but I was snowed in today and couldn't get to work.  Soooo, I crocheted all day and just got it finished.  It can be worn as a necklace or double wrapped and worn as a bracelet. Hope you enjoy!

WOW i bet that took a LOT of skill and patience! I dont even like snakes but had to say this is amazing!

Exodus 35:35 (NIV)~ He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers - all of them skilled workers and designers

Ooh. That is wicked.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Thank you all so much.  Yes, it is crocheted.  I probably have about 20 hours or more into it, from start to finish.  I drew out the pattern which is supposed to look like waves going down the sides of the body.  All the beads are then strung onto the ball of thread in order according to the pattern.  Then you start crocheting from the tail and each bead is worked into each stitch and you finish at the head.  I'm glad you liked him.

Oh wow Smiley. I love the detail and colour on the snake! The technique looks really intricate, but the result is amazing. Great job!
