30- Minute Necklaces- A giveaway!
30-Minute Necklaces: 60 Quick & Creative Projects for Jewelers by Marthe Le Van is available through Lark Books. A 136-page paperback book, with interesting and thought-provoking projects that should each only take about 30 minutes to create. This is my kind of beading book, especially since I don't generally like to take a lot of time to create my designs!
I love the inspiring projects, and the fact that there is a little bit of everything, for the beader or the metalsmither. The projects are clear and easy to understand, and the photography is stellar, showing an overall shot of the finished piece, and a nice close up for each piece.
A few of my friends are in this one as well, Erin Strother (who I'm sure you've seen in Stringing magazine) and also author Brenda Schweder!
I have one Author-signed copy of this book, and am giving it away! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post! I will draw a random comment to win, on Sunday evening, Oct 31st! Happy Halloween!
Hi Lorelei, I am always on the look out for fast easy and pretty projects (emphasis on fast and easy!). I would love to win this book!ReplyDelete
BTW, I live about 20 minutes from Raleigh. Lovely area!
It looks like a fun book and 30 minutes - great.ReplyDelete

We are always looking for fun & quick ways to get creative, but get some kind of instant gratification too!ReplyDelete
Would LOVE to review & work with the projects in this book!
That looks like a super fun book, and since I don't really have many (2) jewelry making books, I could definitely use it :)ReplyDelete

Totally my type of publication. If I don't finish it in one sitting, it often goes to the back of the pile and then it usually ends up being deconstructed and/or reassembled.ReplyDelete
It looks great! I would love to win!ReplyDelete
I love your jewelry-making style.ReplyDelete
Looks and sound like an interesting and informative book.ReplyDelete

What a fun! To have a contest on Halloween!!!
