We need your help: We’re selecting the cover for the new Aimee Ray book, Aimee Ray’s Sweet & Simple Jewelry, due out in Spring 2013! We’re down to two candidates, and we want your help in finalizing our choices.
In this book, best-selling author Aimee Ray presents jewelry from 15 wonderful designers, representing all the hottest trends among crafters and on Etsy. In these projects, you’ll make your own molds to create flower cabochons and cameos; use polymer clay, epoxy clay, and paper clay; make projects with needle felting, cross-stitch, and of course embroidery; create fun beaded projects (including a wrapped bead bracelet) and jewelry that utilizes shrink plastic; and much more. The pieces are easy to make once you learn how, and of course the book teaches you!
Here’s the book’s official description, which hits the feel of the book much better than what I just typed: “Aimee Ray, the bestselling author of Doodle Stitching — along with top Etsy and indie designers — presents some of the most beautiful, on-trend jewelry projects ever. Designed for general crafters, jewelry makers, and Ray’s legion of fans, these stunning pieces feature a range of techniques, from Aimee’s popular embroidery on felt to tiny living terrariums in a necklace. Ray even includes the hot new trend of making and using molded cabochons! Filled with inspiring and innovative ideas, this is a book every crafter will want to own.”
We’ve narrowed the cover options down to two, and they’re really close for us. So we decided to let our crafting community weigh in! You’ll see the two middle images swapped up and down between the two covers below. Look at them one by one, and then let us ask you:
