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!
