BBG #3: Crystal Brilliance

Beadweaver's third book in the Big Book Giveaway is a new title from Kalmbach Publishers and the editors at Bead & Button Magazine: Crystal Brilliance.

Written by Anna Elizabeth Draeger, Crystal Brilliance showcases the breathtaking hues of Swarovski Elements. Featuring 26 projects plus creative variations on the designs, beaders can choose their style: Classic, Romantic, Geometric, or Organic. A basics section is included so beginners can quickly develop their skills with confidence.
As with all Kalmbach jewelry-making books, Crystal Brilliance features clear, color photos with step by step instructions to guide the beader through the projects.
I really like this book. What's wonderful is the combination of images plus the graphic step-by-step instructions plus the written instructions. This appeals to all styles of learning which makes it a great book for all levels of beadweavers. I also love the designs in this book. This book is a tough one for me to part with!

And now for the FAQs:
*How will you draw the winner?* I recently discovered & use a service that randomly chooses a randomly assigned number:

* Will you post my private email address on your blog?* No. Only the lead name of the winning email address will be announced (the name before the @).

*I signed up but Feedburner asked me to verify my request. What do I do?* You must verify your email address. Feedburner will send an email to the address you gave it. Please respond to this email request to activate your subscription. You can deactivate it at any time too.

*Will I get advertisements or spam by signing up for your posts by email?* No. You will only get my Beadweaver blog posts by email when you sign up for this list. That's it. And I will never share it with anyone either.

*If I win, do I have to pay for shipping?* No. I'll send it to you via our U.S. postal service.

*I live in Timbuktu. Can I enter?* Yes. As long as you have a reasonable postal service available to you that does business with our postal service, chances are I can get it there.

*Why do I have to sign up for an email service?* Because it is the simplest way I have of contacting you and keeping your email and identity private. You can always unsubscribe.

*What if I don't want to be entered to win this book but I want to be on your email list?* You can either send me an email now and I will remove you from the tally for this book or you can wait to see if you won before letting me know. I usually pick a sequence of random numbers in case the winner has dropped out of sight.
