Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery will release to stores from our warehouse in the next couple of weeks. I’m TOO excited about it, though, so much so that I can’t wait those days to do this very special giveaway to celebrate:

Lark Jewelry & Beading is giving away all four books in the Beadweaving Master Class series: Diane Fitzgerald’s Shaped Beadwork, Marcia DeCoster’s Beaded Opulence, Laura McCabe’s Embellished Beadweaving, and the brand new Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery. These inspirational and best-selling books, wonderful and essential titles for your jewelry and beading libraries from leading bead master teachers, are all signed by their authors, too!

How to enter for a chance to win this fantastic bundle of signed books? It’s easy: Leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Monday, February 28.

Any post will do, but how about this: Tell us what topics you’d like to see Lark tackling in our beading and jewelry books, or tell us the names of favorite designers you’d like to see become favorite authors! One winner will be selected at random and announced on Thursday, March 3. Click here for the official rules.

I know what you’re thinking: “I bet they’ll do another giveaway in the fall when two more new titles in the Beadweaving Master Class series — books by Rachel Nelson-Smith and Maggie Meister — are released.” You’re probably right, too, and then it might happen again next year when beading books come out from the magical Sabine Lippert and Sonoko Nozue. (And yes, I’m pleased to announce new books are in the works from Diane Fitzgerald and Marcia DeCoster, too, PLUS Jamie Cloud Eakin’s Dimensional Bead Embroidery is due out this fall!) But don’t let my redundancy and lack of imagination stop you: simply enter each and every giveaway for your chance to win some great books!

And don’t forget to browse around the websites and blogs of all these wonderful jewelry designers:

    What a wonderful give away!! I love to do bead weaving although I have less time to do it than I would like. :) My problem is usually time constraints – more designs that take less time would be a topic I’d love … or maybe designs meant to be given as gifts that don’t take half a lifetime to execute. :)

    Leslie S. says:

    Amazingly generous giveaway! I would love to see some jewelery books that use multi-mediums, such as metal work with beading. The metal work portion, needs to show how to solder connections and cold connection methods. Or throw polymer clay in with the mix too.

    -Leslie

    Clay57 says:

    Wow, wonderful give away. Love the books. I like to work bead weaving adding my polymer clay beads.

    Nancy Dale says:

    What a fantastic giveaway!!! I adore all of the authors, this would be an amazing gift!!!

    carol says:

    Wow what a wonderful giveaway this is. Hope I am the lucky winner I love doing things like this.

    Everything you guys publish is so wonderful that this would be such an incredible addition to my library.

    Maria says:

    Wow–what an amazing collection of books!

    Carol Dean Sharpe says:

    What an incredible giveaway! While I already have Diane’s, Laura’s, and Marcia’s book on my shelves and Sherry’s book is “on order,” I would gladly pass on the unsigned copies in my own blog drawing were I to win this! Whoever came up with the idea for this series is a genius, by the way!

    Wendyfellers says:

    What a beautiful book. I want to so bad to learn how to bead!

    Wlstarn says:

    The photography really makes these books! Wonderful, inspirational pictures.

    Gre8dean says:

    That these artists of their high caliber are willing to pass their knowledge to all of us is amazing. Every book is a gold mine of information. Of course it doesn’t hurt that the photographs are luscious. If I had to choose one of them – and I can’t – I’d love to see more books authored by Diane Fitzgerald. But that’s just my humble opinion because I’m in awe of all of these artists.

    Bev says:

    Nothing better for inspiration than sitting with a cup of coffee on a Saturday morning surrounded with books like these. I have Marcia’s book and it perfectly named – such luscious projects. The other books look equally fantastic. Thanks for the opportunity to win them!

    Rockcreekcreations says:

    Wonderful giveaway! I would love to win this! Of course the artist I think you should consider has already replied to the giveaway. Carol Dean Sharpe does awesome work!! http://www.etsy.com/shop/SandFibers?ref=top_trail

    Gracebeading says:

    A bead book jackpot – that’s what this is! You already have all my favorite designers listed, so there’s not much I can add there.

    Thanks for the chance to win these,
    Grace

    Holy smokes! Giving away books? I’m in…as far as designers go…I don’t really know who else you could add to this list, it’s awesome!

    Christine Bossler says:

    Yes in deed, this is really nice of Lark Books to do. It would be great to see some more from the 500 series possibly revisiting hollowware, enamel or perhaps some thing more open that is by state.

    Joannl says:

    Oh wow! Quite a line up of books coming. I can’t wait!

    Leesie2k says:

    Love, Love all beadweaving books

    Christina J. says:

    I was going to suggest Cynthia Rutledge, but then I saw her on your list. Love this series.

    Wormlynn says:

    I love the shaped beadwork book! Look how beautiful they are!

    LisaT says:

    I’d love to see enameling covered as a jewelry topic.

    Anonymous says:

    I love all the seed bead books! I would like to see something with different projects mixing art glass and seed beads :)

    Templedeborah says:

    Love all your books. Would like to see more wireworking books. Also more on beginning metal. But am loving the dimensional/bead embroidery.

    Melej23 says:

    Dimensional beading has revived my love of jewelry. Until the last few years I’ve found jewelry to be boring and uninspired. As an aspiring fashion designer, I am impressed and envious of the designs I’ve seen sprout up in the jewelry fashion world in the last couple years and would love to gain more knowledge on the techniques used to bring a new element to my own fashions!

    Janel says:

    I love all of the these authors. Their work has always amazed me.

    Melissa says:

    Thank you for introducing us to these amazing bead artists. I look forward to see where you take us next. Thank you for your generous giveaways.

    Since you have Cynthia Rutledge & Sabine Lippert on your list, I don’t know who else I could suggest. I’m just eagerly awaiting their books!

    Amanda E says:

    I’d love to see books that help me make beautiful, eye-catching, rich-looking jewelry for less money. Maybe tips on making glass shine like crystal through innovative techniques, ideas for using a few, more expensive beads with a bunch of more mundane beads to good effect, etc. Or a book on making your own findings with simple household tools, but that still look professional. I also like beadery that makes a big impact for less fiddly work – I’m not terribly tolerant of “fiddly”… every once in a while, but not day by day.

    Beadsophisticate says:

    How about Dustin Wedekind (sp?), Kate McKinnon, or Paulette Baron?

    Francine Hersh says:

    I would love to see more books about steam punk and technical guidance on how to work with it.

    Memerrill007 says:

    Oh my word what a fab give away!!! I’m so excited, my fingers and toes are crossed!

    Nolfan1 says:

    I love the assortment of books you have listed and I’m enormously thrilled to hear that Sabine Lippert will be represented soon as well! As for books I’d like to see from my favorite jewelry artists: Leslee Frumin! Also, beginner level books on wire wrapping/weaving, advanced chain maille and beginner metal smithing. Thanks for letting me put in my .02!

    Sharlyn says:

    I’m a lampworker and am just getting acquainted with beadweaving. I have lots and lots to learn. These books would be so great to help me through the learning curve! How about a title that teaches a lampworker to use some of their own beads in beadweaving? I think you’d have a sure hit! Here’s hoping maybe I’ll be selected to receive the books! What fun!

    Maria says:

    The cover of Laura McCabe’s book made me drool (… and so did Sherry Serafini’s and the others). I’m a jewelry artist, but have not really worked with seed beads much. Looking at this beautiful work makes me want to start, though. I hope I win!!

    Thredz says:

    I am totally addicted to beading, and I have these fabulous designers to thank for giving me inspiration and instruction. I already own Diane Fitzgerald’s breathtaking volume, and would love to add to my (and my local library’s) collection! My current jewelry designs use found objects (beach glass, corals, shells, etc) which I peyote stitch into intricate focal pieces. My goal as an artist is to master large works using Diane’s and Laura McCabe’s techniques to bump up my game.

    Riana says:

    I would really like to see Cynthia Rutledge and Eva Maria Keiser published.They are loved dearly by all serious bead weavers.

    Denise says:

    Great books. I would love to see information on combining with metal work and glass fusing.

    grammajojo says:

    These books look great! Since I am just a newbie, I don’t really know enough about any of the artists to comment on them, but being as I’m just starting to learn even the most basic of stitches, the books would be of tremendous value to me. Thanks for offering such a great contest.

    SallyA says:

    Oh, yes! I would love to win this! I’m trying to learn all about this kind of beading and the books would be so helpful. Thanks for making them available.

    Abarrabarr says:

    I’d love to see books by Todd Reed or Andy Cooperman – Todd has such an iconic style and Andy is such a character that I know any book he wrote would be both fun and educational!

    KipperCat says:

    I have Diane Fitzgerad’s Shaped Beadwork and love it! I would be thrilled to win the collection – even just 1 of them. :)

    Amy says:

    This entire series is a MUST HAVE !!!

    What a wonderful & generous giveaway.
    A possible future artist (that are not already slated to publish) – Jill Wiseman !

    Sharon says:

    What a fabulous group of books!! Personally I’d like to see some more glass books(lampworking techniques and maybe fusing glass and metal)
    Thanks for this opportunity to win these beautiful books!!
    ~Sharon~

    Allie Daugustine says:

    You know, Beth Stone’s work to date doesn’t have the “opulence” that is found in Marcia DeCoster’s book — as well as the others so far in the series. Her seed bead weaving books are incredibly helpful and inspiring — but I’m not sure that all she can be is demonstrated in those books. Of course that is for good reason — she encourages “bead play” and other tips and techniques to help the beader create his/her own designs. So I’d love to see more put-together projects by Beth Stone, who clearly has a wonderful imagination. What would she do if she could sit down and work more intense projects (without fluttering around as in her work to date)!

    Petra says:

    What a generous give-away, thank you.
    Such wonderful books from great bead-artists.

    Kimberly R. says:

    I’d love a chance to enter and would love to see more crochet and knitting with beads :)
    Thanks!

    M E Zig says:

    oh how beautiful! what an awesome giveaway!

    beadhostage says:

    I would like to see some books related to jewelry metalsmithing.

    Fibersong says:

    I’d love some guidance in combining different shapes, sizes and colors, not in a project format, but alternatives and choices and what happens when you make different choices. I quilted for years, and often they showed one quilt in a few different colorways, either the author’s work or works of their students. It was very illuminating, and I’d love that in an advanced level beading book, particularly with cabuchons or found pieces involved.

    Mei says:

    Beautiful! and awesome.
    These are must have for whoever love to make jewelry or beading including me :)

    Lody says:

    I would be thrilled to own all of these books – specially Sherry Serafini’s as I’m a bead embroidery addict!

    Jeanne says:

    I like beading and these books look great! I’d love to see some new books on incorporating color in metalwork: enameling, colored pencils, concrete. . .

    Jeanne says:

    Jeanne says:

    What a great giveaway! I love the inspiration! Thanks!

    MCC says:

    What a great idea, free inspiration:). I’m looking forward to enjoying learning more creative jewelry ideas and techniques. Thanks for putting these books together. In the future, I’d like to see books with step by step color photos and detailed technique assistance on: pmc clay, enamel on metal, glass blown beads, ie: small scale jewelry projects. Love and Blessings, MCC

    CindyB says:

    I’m not sure what new ideas I’d like to see in a beading book but maybe a book on making one’s own beads out of metal clay and other mediums? Count me in on the drawing…

    Susan Blessinger says:

    Sherry Serafini’s new book is a welcome delight to the Master Class series.

    Minxdkrolo says:

    Awesome books!! I’m new to bead weaving and bead embroidery so, I’m looking to learn anything and everything about these topics. I love Sherri Serafini’s and Marcia DeCoster’s work.

    Kathrynguler says:

    Love the give away and love to be inspired! I am a lampworker, but love to use every way to embelish my final work. It would to be great to see another glassbead book!

    You’ve got some inspiring pieces on the covers, as usual! It would be great for me to share this knowledge with my students, as I’m also an art teacher at a public inner-city middle school and I recently starting teaching beadwork to them. Half the books in my art classroom are from me and my co-teacher’s collection, because, seeing as every student in the whole school has art once a week, we are always trying to make sure we have enough materials, tools and books to engage a wide range of learning styles.

    I would like to see metal jewelry artist Tamra Gentry featured in one of your books and a book that highlights the accomplishments of metalsmiths of African American descent, as we seem to be far and few between in books and publications.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    WingSmith2010 says:

    I have shared the link and the only comment I have to wow. I have long admired all these artists work and would love to have signed copies of the book. I was lucky enough to meet Laura McCabe last year when she was in the UK and am hoping to one day meet the other designers too.

    Lynn Berry says:

    What a wonderful collection of books by extraordinarily gifted artists!! I’m sharing this with all of my Facebook friends!

    Annabel says:

    I am looking forward all your books, but it would be nice to have more wire jewelry publications!

    What a lineup of great books! Any one of them is great inspiration – all four is just over the top!!

    Gwen Youngblood

    OMG, those have to be the BEST beading books yet….drool! drool! You’ve pretty much covered my favorite artists. There are a few more I can think of whose work I’d love to see featured in a book of their own…Cynthia Rutledge being one of them.

    Cyn B. says:

    Y’all just keep coming up with great books!! which all eventually wind up in my library!! Looking forward to Sherry’s new book and all the others you’ve mentioned to tease us all with!
    Bead Wishes and Dragonfly Dreams, Cyn

    Simone says:

    These books look stunning. Sherry Serafini is my beading role models. The skill level of these women makes my head spin. Good stuff.

    Linda says:

    Wow! What a giveaway! I’d love to win. I would also love to see a book on felting – there are some amazing felted vessels being created by Shirley Cook that incorporate beads and ceramic objects. And another book I’d love to see would be about Kumihimo with beads. Jamie North does some amazing Kumihimo work with wire and Adrienne Gaskell also does some beautiful beaded Kumihimo jewelry. Thanks!

    Kathy V in NM says:

    Thanks for providing this awesome opportunity! Love all the beading artists you have done so far and have in the works. Would love to see books done by Heidi Kummli and Robin Atkins, too.

    Sian N says:

    I would love to see a book by Cynthia Rutledge, her designs her luscious! Excited to read that Marcia has another book in progress and look forward to Sabine’s book next year!

    Arlinebeadlady says:

    Adding these books to my collection would be a real bonus. The autors are all so knowledgeable and convey their knowledge in ways the average beader can easily understand. Looking forward to the new books coming up as well.

    Rosanne says:

    I love all the books you have coming out lately. There are so many great artists. I think you’ve done a wonderful job picking the artist who represent the bead world.

    Stunning

    I work with recycled zippers, I would love to see a bit more in the mainstream about recycling. I’ve seen some gorgeous work from people using fabrics etc. Having said that, the books look stunning.

    Yadasi Beads says:

    What a super offer for us Lark Masters Series Beading books!!

    Yadasi Beads says:

    What a super offer for us fans of the Lark “BEADING” Master Class Series Books!! Absolutely must have books for your beading library!!

    Karen Gill says:

    What a wonderful prize!! All these authors are such wonderful artists, it would be fabulous to own these treasures!

    Patricia says:

    This would be such a great prize. I’ve just started beading my embroidery projects and to have these books from such amazing experts would be fabulous!!!!! I’m so glad I accidently got lost and found your website!

    Jane1 says:

    These books would be wonderful to have to learn from Great giveaway.

    Jaqui says:

    Wow! Great books!!! Love them all!
    I would like to find a book about tricks and tips for jewelry making. The kind of tricks that you learn at workshops but are never mentioned in books.
    Cheers!

    Horganjm says:

    These books would be a wonderful addition to my beading library

    Anonymous says:

    I’d love to see a book that details some really intricate wedding jewelry projects… stuff that would NOT be for beginners and would be elegant.

    Robyn31107 says:

    I love to read beading books, they are as full of inspiration as their authors, the very talented beaders that they are. I can not pick a favorite author but if I were forced to do so, Marcia DeCoster is currently at the top of my list.

    CAN HARDLY WAIT FOR SHERRY SERAFINI’S NEW BOOK, I ALREADY HAVE THE OTHER THREE. BUT WOULD LOVE TO HAVE AUTOGRAPHED COPIES.. KAREN IN CALIF.

    Kathi says:

    These books look wonderful.
    I would love to see information on just getting started with beading, tools, good classes, etc. This has been very hard to find.

    To bad the giveaway is only open to U.S and B.C. residents. I would’ve loved a chance to win these drool worthy books. Yum!

    Kristina (aka Maneki) says:

    (Oops — not sure where I got BC from in my previous comments. I guess the bibliophile in me was too preoccupied oogling the books to notice what I wrote. )

    Fthompson311 says:

    Abolutely to die for~~~ I would LOVE to have these books!

    Kristy says:

    I love this series of books! I am a mom working outside the home and I don’t have a lot of time for beading. I would like to see a book of smaller-scale projects that don’t take as long to make, but still incorporating the beadweaving that I love. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Joan cain says:

    What a great way to make beautiful articles. Joan

    Julzethier says:

    Awesome set of books. Looking forward to the new ones also!

    Njdrrn says:

    I have been a great fan of both Marcia DeCoster and Diane Fitzgerald since I discovered beading 4 years ago. I love seeing how many different ways that we can apply the bead stitches. Many of these books show lush and beautiful projects – I would love to see Lark books publish a book on bead jewlery that you could dress-up or dress-down, not necessarily all of the swarovski – which looks intimidating to some.

    Sue says:

    Four books!!! wow! I have many books, but I don’t have any of these. Would love to win them!

    Jen Casper says:

    This is such a wonderful giveaway! :) I would love to have these books! Bead embroidery is so incredible. I would love to see more of it. Lark always has great titles. Thanks for the chance!

    Deanna says:

    Would love to have these fantastic ladies sitting on my shelves!

    Tbatesdesign says:

    Would love to see a book on Kumihimo.

    Snappher says:

    Yikes, I don’t know which book I’d drool over first! They all look tres magifique!!! And the idea of creating beads FROM beads…OMG. It never ends!! I’ve got to keep learning new techniques or my 10,000 lbs. of stach will never decrease! :) I’m crossing my fingers for a win. :)

    Sandy says:

    What a terrific offer. And I love the oppulence of the jewelry shown.

    Botm2 says:

    I would love to win these books, which I would share with my daughter. What a wonderful giveaway! Thank you.

    jo says:

    These would be a great addition to my small but growing collection of beading books.

    Sweet Freedom Designs says:

    Already have pre-ordered 2 of these books; now drooling over the other 2!

    Denny J H says:

    Wow what an oppertunity to have these books as my own, I do like the hours of insperation and knowlege they wil inspire!!

    Maladylis says:

    How beautiful ! I love Lark books and can’t wait to get these into my collection ! The photos are amazing !

    I love beading books! I have some that are falling apart because I look at them so much! Would be great to add these ones to my collection!

    Sarah says:

    really great to have discovered this web site! would love to win the books they look amazing

    Jane Peterson says:

    I have taken classes with all four of these exception women – I’m sure these books are as awesome as they are!

    Penny says:

    What gorgeous looking books – as a teacher of beadwork for beginners, in London UK, the work in these books would be a fantastic inspiration to both me and my students. The cover images look beautiful.

    Suegregor says:

    These books would be really useful to me and help me devlop new ideas of how to develop my work.

    Sadhvi says:

    Beautiful art! Creating is the key to a better world!

    Jenny says:

    One can never have too many craft/art jewelry bks…!

    Awjewelry says:

    what a great giveaway — I am always looking for new ideas and love to see the differing styles of each artist. I would love to win these books they would be so inspiring!

    Zsuzsanna Domak says:

    I already have Diane Fitzgerald’s Shaped Beadwork and Laura McCabe’s Embellished Beadweaving, and I’ve preordered Sherry Serafini’s Sensational Bead Embroidery, but I’m missing Marcia DeCoster’s Beaded Opulence. If I have signed copies, as Carol, I would pass my unsigned copies to my beadingmates in our local beadweaving group, they would be very happy.

    Kathleen says:

    I own a very small bead store and would love to use these as giveaway. I have started a Freebie Friday this year and have been teaching out books and magazines to teach my customers how to read a pattern on their own so they won’t be scared to purchase these books and magazines. Maybe in March I could give a book away too.

    Higgyr says:

    These books look great – very inspiring.

    Dragonfiremail says:

    What a great collection! I teach jewelry classes for our local art centers and tech school – everything from beading & wirework to silversmithing, stonecutting, PMC and enamels. These would give me a tone of great new projects for my students. I’m always challenging them to try something new and these books would really inspire them.

    Trish says:

    I would so love to have these books in my library! There is just so much to learn from others….and these kind of books further everyone’s skills.
    I would love to see books about beaded beads of all kinds and methods…..and more on peyote stitch with delicas…..personal favorites of mine!

    Lmkordus says:

    I agree with Carol Dean Sharpe….and I also have Diane’s, Laura’s, and Marcia’s book on my shelves….and Sherry’s on order. What a fabulous idea!!! It’s hard to suggest any others, except you need to take a look at Heather Collin’s work….amazing and gorgeous!!!

    I would LOVE to win signed copies of these books! Cant wait to see Sherrys book out this summer, already know the others are great books!

    Ann Rosier says:

    I would love to add those books to my collection of Lark books. While Marcia lives here by me, I have never gotten her book(don’t know why). Thanks for doing this give away!
    Ann Rosier

    Mia Denman says:

    Wow! This is a fantastic giveaway!! My bead library sorely needs all four of these books!! I would just about pass out from happiness if I won!!!!

    Sharron2001 says:

    I have a ‘bead night’ at my house every Tuesday evening. Wait until I tell the girls about this!! Thanks you sooooo much. Good luck everybody; wish we all could win.

    Karen Woods says:

    Thank you for selecting Diane Fitzgerald! Her books are the best! So easy to follow!

    Diane says:

    I would love these books to add to my collection of jewelry books. They would stimulate me to try something new, and push me out of my comfort zone! Thanx for the opportunity to win them!

    Linsthings says:

    These look like incredable books

    Brundiesmediate says:

    Wow, very cool!!

    Anonymous says:

    Nice selection!! I’d love to have them:)

    Mary Govaars says:

    WOW! These books are amazing, I would love to add this to my library, what a great reference to start learning bead weaving techniques.

    I am not an artist and that is one of the reasons I love these books. I can create things that would not be possible to do on my own. The authors share their knowledge and inventiveness with me and inspire me to try things out of my comfort zone. I have never tried the bead embroidery but it looks so beautiful I just cannot wait to try it. I have such fun with this and enjoy showing off the finished products so much. Also being able to create something beautiful to give to family and friends is just the best part of the fun. Thanks for sharing with an artistically challenged person.

    Angela says:

    I would love, love, love to have all of these awesome books in my library! I am so looking forward to Sherry’s especially.

    Jewelry Arts Studio says:

    I would love to see a book dedicated to a marriage of traditional metal smithing techniques AND traditional bead weaving techniques. Generally, you see books where beading techniques are being employed to secure focal objects (cabochons, found objects, gems, etc…) What I would LOVE to see is a book where it is the other way around. Metal jewelry featuring beaded objects. :)

    Jenny Lawson says:

    I’d love to win these books! I’m always eager for new ideas.

    Liz Steiner says:

    Hmmmm. . . titles I’d like to see. . . Making beads out of alternative materials? Enameled beads? Fabric beads? Found object beads?

    Karen says:

    I want to eat these womens creations. I am in awe of their talent.

    Ziva says:

    These are all wonderful books!

    These would be awesome to have as I have mainly done wire work, there are so many possibilities! :)

    Adori L'Argento says:

    Wow, great books on beadwork!!! I am a metal clay artist. I also would like to see a book on step-by-step techniques to complement metal clay creations.

    Ann McKee says:

    I’d LOVE to add this one to my beading library! I already own the rest in the Master’s Class series and adore Sherry’s work. I also would like to see a book dedicated to mixed media projects (particularly mixing metals with beadweaving).

    I am new to your site. I am not sure if you have this, but I would like to see simple seed beading projects, with colored charts. Something else that would help someone who has not tried a certain technique, is a video showing how it is worked.

    Deb_armentrout says:

    would like to see a really good book with step by step instructions for all kinds of stitches…peyote, brick, etc.

    Zorina says:

    I’d love a book that co-mingled traditional design concepts with contemporary bead, metal and polymer clay jewelry.

    Claire McCann says:

    This is absolutely amazing work that is done. I am thrilled to see the talent and thought that has gone into each piece that I have see. I have two sons that are sheet metal welders and both have talents that they have used to make and incorporate their talents into their work.

    B'dette says:

    The talent possessed by these women has reinvented beadwork and catapulted into the modern world.

    Judith says:

    I would love to win these fabulous books!

    Catherine says:

    Three of these books are on my wish list, and I own Marcia DeCoster’s Beaded Opulence, which I love! Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest. I love working with fused glass and the PMC Silver Syringe. It might be fun to have a book which incorporates PMC decorated cabochons and handmade beads with the more traditional seed bead styles.

    sandi m says:

    These are beautiful – would love to add them to my collection.

    Sansan239s says:

    I would love to see a book or a series of books that would showcase both Bead Masters, as well as Lampwork Masters such as, Melanie Moertel, Cynthia Tilker, Sharon Peters, Michou. Pascale Anderson, Angela Brack Rogge, Corina Tettinger and so on. I would like to see a correlation between the glass bead artists and the bead artists, to create jewelry pieces that would inspire both medium Masters to create new and exciting jewelry. please….. :0)

    Pamplemousse says:

    These books, they look so nice. They are full of ideas and just the right price. I want to own them all, someday. And maybe chance will go my way.

    Irene says:

    Wow What a great giveaway. I would love to see a book that show how to use leftover beads and findings to make up things so we can use up more of our stash.

    Anonymous says:

    I would like to see a book on weaving with wire showing several different patterns. And I would love to win the books!

    marva says:

    I would love to add these books to my collection

    Chris says:

    Lark craft books are some of the best books available. I just wish that we could still mail order direct from Lark books. I bought a very small hand loom and would like to see an insturctional book on that. I want to learn how to make bracelets, some with beads, on the loom and can only find insturctional books for bigger looms. I love bead jewelry and these books look fantastic!

    Carol W. says:

    I’d love to see instruction for making really unique jewelry from buttons. So far I can’t get beyond the real basics.

    Laurettapat says:

    I have already purchased Diane Fitzgerald so it’s time I explored these other great artists. Thank you to Lark for a great giveaway.

    Judy Lovell says:

    What an opportunity this is to receive all of these books at once. I have Marcia and Laura’s books and have Sherry’s newest one on order, however, I do not have Diane’s book. I just started a blog recently and I really like Carol’s idea about giving away the books on my blog, so that’s what I would do as well. Good Luck to Everyone,

    Jvaala says:

    Oh… this is unbelievable. I would do anything to own this series ;). They are the most inspirational books on beading available and to win this would be a jackpot. Also, I would love Larkbooks to come out with a book on advance wire wrapping incorporating beads of all sizes including cabochons and seed beads.

    Gsangstar says:

    i’d love to see how to use beading in clothing and other accessories besides jewelry – fun!

    erwills says:

    Tjones780 says:

    Lidia Carnevale says:

    Hola, tengo los libros pero no en papel y sería maravilloso tenerlos firmados por sus autores, me prendo, los abalorios son un vicio, me gustaría ver más de Eny Oken y Suzanne Cooper, son mis preferidas. Gracias por actualizarme con las entregas periódicas que envían, bendiciones, Lidia

    Kathy says:

    I’m always looking for inspiration and these books seem to be filled with it.

    I would really use these!

    Minardmum says:

    I am a new viewer, so I don’t know exactly what to say, but those magazines will give me somewhere to start. I haven’t been making jewelry long so pick me, pick me…..LOL

    Minardmum says:

    Oops I was gonna mention my website. http://www.etsy.com/shop/minardmum

    Rochen says:

    Fortunately, I dont have any of the books and would love to get back into beading!

    Excellent!

    Mark Hennig says:

    I would be so over the top to get even one of these books.  I love to see anything in print on using size 11 beads. This is my favorite bead to work with mixed with crystals of course.
