Big Book Giveaway: Two More Beautiful Books!!!

Nancy Zeller's Bead Tube Jewelry is a delightful mix of styles, patterns and colors. When I first received this book I wondered just what a beader could do with bead tubes? Well, Nancy's put together an imaginative collection! There are over 30 fabulous projects in this book as well as an excellent discussion of how to read and weave even and odd count peyote patterns as well as brick stitch patterns. It's a very inclusive book and is perfect for the beginner as well as advanced beadweaver. It's a "must have" for every beaders home library.


Bead & Button's Big Book of Beading Patterns is a collection of many of the great patterns found in their bimonthly magazine. Included are designs in peyote stitch, right angle weave, square stitch, brick stitch, herringbone, and loomwork. The patterns include Animals, Geometric and Abstract Designs, Holidays, Mythological Creatures, Plant & Flowers, and Miscellaneous patterns (including the Mona Lisa!).  It really is a great collection - especially if you haven't been a regular subscriber to their magazine.

TWO Great Books, ONE Lucky Winner!

Big Book Giveaway: Two Beautiful New Books


I have two great new books to give away to the readers of Beadweaver. The first title is from our very own beader, Heather Powers. It's called "Jewelry Designs From Nature: Woodlands, Gardens, Sea". It's a really beautiful book. Heather combines all kinds of beads and findings to create very organic, lovely, wearable items. There are thirty-two projects in all. I highly recommend this book for its instruction and inspiration.

The second is "Creative Chain Mail Jewelry" which combines works from over twenty artists that have been featured in Bead and Button and Art Jewelry magazines. Easy projects focus on opening and closing jump rings, stringing, and crimping, while the more advanced projects require soldering. This is a good book for all levels interested in the art of chain mail jewelry.

One lucky winner will receive BOTH BOOKS!
